This year I have my 6th graders writing and maintaining a classroom blog. Each week a different student is expected to write blog posts. The first quarter+ each student just wrote on the blog with few requirements. Obviously I proof what they read before it goes live. I wanted them to be familiar with the blogger format and get used to the idea that their families were seeing their posts.
However, now that each student has become familiar with the program, I want them to have more requirements. I’ve created this rubric to grade my students. After all, why not meet some writing standards?!
They will be graded on title, text, pictures (which they are responsible for taking), spelling/grammar, including their name, and frequency of posts.
