A “rubric” lists the criteria on which student work will be evaluated. Teachers provide rubrics to help guide students to the successful completion of an assignment. Here are two strategies to ensure your child is meeting all of the requirements set forth in the rubric.
- At the start of the paper or project, have your child restate, or better, rewrite each piece of the rubric in their own words. It’s a great way to become familiar with what’s in the rubric and ensure your child understands its contents.
- Return to the rubric as a final step of the assignment and ask “Did I…?” to each piece. If they “did,” they can feel confident they’ve met all the requirements and are handing in their best effort.
