As you may remember (and if you don't, check out this post: Writing Unit Sequence, my writing sequence to begin a new writing genre always includes a rubric.
Here is the rubric jointly created by our class.
The students chose Structure, Creativity, Writing Process, Language Features, and Grammar and Spelling as the categories for a narrative rubric.
Then working in small groups, they filled in what a 5*, 4*, and 3* and lower narrative would look like for each category.
Once again, excellent collaboration between students.
The creation of rubrics by the students is a part of the e5 Instructional Model, as it relates to the engage section of the model: "The teacher presents a purpose for learning, determining challenging learning goals, and making assessment and performance requirements clear."
