Hi Emma! The picture of the rubric is the one the students and I co-created. We analyzed an EL Model of an informative writing piece to come up with the criteria for our own. Each student was provided a copy of the informative writing piece and we came up with the criteria as a whole class. Looking at the EL Model we asked ourselves.. "What makes a great informative book?"
Hey there! We can't wait for our first design workshop!
Great question. I find the high quality of student work on EL's Models of Excellence really helps students identify criteria we are aiming for. Our critique session was held whole group, and each student was provided a copy of the work. Just asking the students what makes it easy for them to read and navigate an information book was beneficial!
