Why I Won't Be Using Rubrics to Respond to Students' Writing
Wilson, Maja
English Journal, v96 n4 p62-66 Mar 2007
Maja Wilson believes that efforts to standardize language through rubrics and generalized comments provide a disservice to students and undermine the power of the reading and writing experience. She advocates making use of our subjectivity as readers, conceding that her values cannot be standardized and often shift in response to interactions with students and their writing.
