2015-16 Units of Study Expectations
Rubrics: All grade levels will use Lucy Calkins' rubrics to score all areas (e.g., conventions, structure, genre).
Grading: Each unit will be taught and assessed at least one time this year. Use post on-demand assessment data and consider other important aspects of student writing to inform grading decisions (e.g., notebook entries, drafts and publications).
Report Cards: Writing standards can be aligned to follow Units of Study program.
*This is year 1 of a 3 year implementation.
