Ruth sent this for Kristen but I thought I would post it here for anyone interested.
I don’t know if the attached document would be useful to Kristen who is looking for speech and writing rubrics. It’s just for listening comrehension and speaking. I made it up a while ago but have yet to use it, so it’s never been critiqued and tweeked. It’s not based on anything except my own thoughts about what I would want to show the kids about where they are at.
I don’t grade speaking or writing, and I don’t have to do formal assessments at this point, but it may be coming down the pike. Also, I find many kids want things like this for their own reasons and to feel more like school. At this point I get more pressure from some kids than I do from administration. I’d like to find time to have a one-on-one conversation with each student, to show them how much they can do and to give this a try.
