Session Detail

Creating Secondary Classroom Writing Rubrics
From Punctuation to ECR!

Middle School-High School

Important Session Information:

Middle School and High School teachers, students need to know your writing expectations from the beginning of the year.  You need to be able to communicate these expectations from the beginning of the year.  

In this workshop, we will start with the TEKS and Student Expectations of Grammar and Punctuation, setting up our non-negotiable rubrics and a timeline for these to 'make the list'.  The list will be made up of those rules students should know. 

We will practice speaking response skills and how to prompt students to speak in full and complete sentences using academic language.  How do students use the question or prompt to accurately provide an answer?  Sentence starters will be used and created as needed during this part of the workshop. 

The Short-Constructed Response items must be part of the day's learning.  We will take a look at what TEA types of answers have been awarded the full credit; what makes an accurate answer and acceptable evidence. These acceptable answers will provide our non-negotiables for SCRs. 

We will also analyze what a masterful Extended-Constructed Response is made of. Again, we will explore what TEA has provided as the exemplar and create our classroom rubrics based on these.   

Teachers, you are encouraged to bring your 2024-2025 Calendar or Scope and Sequence so that you may map out when you will be introducing specific skills, when you will continuing the instruction of those skills, and when you will be expecting mastery from your students.
