Ruth’s rubric, designed to keep kids at their ease and not as a “gotcha” kind of thing to put in the grade book, reminds me of a post here from a few years ago by Sabrina, which, if anyone doubts the power of comprehensible input instruction, they should definitely watch:
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.
