Procedural Essay Rubric

The Common Core State Standards have made it even more important for educators to assist students in making the connections between writing and reading through thoughtful and well-planned instruction, assignments and feedback.

The Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD) created Common Core State Standards-aligned writing rubrics as a resource to assist teachers with this work. These rubrics are intended to help in instructional planning and to provide guidance in assisting students with the writing process.

Description

Students were required to write an instructional/procedural text. In order to do this, they were given two options, to write about how to make a particular type of sandwich, or alternatively, how to turn the other five/six teacher ‘Marty’ in to a toad. As part of the assessment, students were required to include particular text features like adverbs and time connectives. Although not always assessed in procedural texts, for this particular task, the teacher told students that they must include accompanying images with their explanations.
