Annotating Rubrics ~Middle School

This school year has started with creating interactive reading journals grades 5-7, and I have had a blast working with these amazing teachers!

Our sixth grade team is reading Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.  Students are working on visualization, key vocabulary words and evidence from text to support their findings.  {Here} is my post on visualization.

Part of setting expectations for students is developing rubrics AND annotating these rubrics so students tune into key information.  We have developed the same rubric for peer evaluation, self-evaluation and teacher evaluation, scaffolding practice of writing and evaluating for exemplar standards. 

Below, you will see an annotated rubric and model exemplar sample for students. I hope this will help you kick-start your facilitation of metacognitive strategies!
