K-8 Writing Rubrics and Checklists
Grade level rubrics for each of the three types of writing laid out in the CCS Standards: opinion/argument (W.1), informative/explanatory (W.2), and narrative (W.3)
EL Education created these 6-8 rubrics based on an analysis of the grade-level demands of the CCS Standards, rubrics used by PARCC and Smarter Balanced, and EL Education's own professional expertise (including attention to the Writing for Understanding framework). The bolded language in the Proficient column is taken directly from the CCS Standards.
