Designing and Using Rubrics for Reading and Language Arts, K-6. Second Edition
Groeber, Joan F.
Literacy consultant Joan Groeber provides educators with a teacher-friendly, step-by-step guide for creating and using rubrics to assess a wide range of literacy skills. Groeber's approach helps ensure that students gain a clear understanding of teacher expectations and assume a greater responsibility for their own learning. Offering an overview of rubrics as instructional tools, with methods and strategies for developing them, the revised edition includes: (1) Expanded guidelines for creating rubrics; (2) More than 40 time-saving, preconstructed model rubrics covering key literacy skills; (3) Rubrics at both primary and intermediate grade levels; (4) Strategies for introducing rubrics to students, and suggestions for using the rubrics; and (5) New rubrics that reflect the expanding field of literacy education, including information literacy and technology use. Using this comprehensive resource, teachers can design rubrics to meet their specific classroom needs, giving students the opportunity to identify and achieve high levels of performance. Following a preface, this book is divided into eight chapters: (1) Rubrics--A General Overview; (2) Constructing Rubrics; (3) Using Rubrics to Assess Reading Comprehension; (4) Rubrics for Fictional Story Elements; (5) Rubrics for Assessing Student Writing; (6) Assessment Rubrics and Oral Language; (7) Rubrics and the Research Process; and (8) Rubrics and Classroom Technology. A list of Internet sites is appended. A bibliography and an index conclude the book.
