Co-created rubrics are a great way to develop student agency. Before creating the rubric for our informative books, we critiqued an informative writing piece that demonstrated excellence. We asked ourselves, "What makes a great informational book?" Using these identifiers we created the rubric to self-assess our own informative books.

All of the criteria used to create the rubric was from the students. As the teacher, I was there to scaffold and help model what great feedback "looks" and "sounds" like (kind, specific, helpful). 

With a co-created rubric, students were eager to revise and edit their own work. The informative writing we used for critique was found on EL Education's Models of Excellence page.
