FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Critical Thinking Rubric for Writing & Projects - Suitable for All Subject Areas”

by Set Course with Mrs Rutters
6th - 9th Grade


Critical Thinking Rubric for Writing & Projects - Suitable for All Subject Areas

This product contains:
1. Full page Critical Thinking Rubric (original and embellished versions)
2. Lined generic response page with rubric
3. Open prompt page with rubric
4. “Critical Thinking: What Does Success Look Like?” display chart (original & embellished versions)

6 Usable Pages (+1 page - Suggestions for Use)

This rubric provides a clear explanation to students about how to create responses to show their critical thinking. The rubric is formatted generally so you can use it with a variety of prompts and projects. Students should be thinking critically in all subjects, but providing clear guidelines and assessing those standards can be incredibly difficult. This rubric is designed to provide a consistent set of expectations that can be referred to with any subject or with any project.

This rubric can be used in any subject area (Math, Reading, Science, Social Studies, STEM, Humanities, Art, Music, Foreign Languages, Physical Education, etc.) for any activity where students are expected to create something to show their critical thinking and understanding (reports, essays, multimedia presentations, slideshows, videos, skits, speeches, brochures, advertisements, games, picture books, magazine articles, posters, etc.).

There is great flexibility in how you use the rubric to generate grades. It can be a useful formative assignment tool to provide feedback to students about how to improve their responses. It can be used with summative assessments to evaluate student understanding.

The categories for the rubric are:
* Does not meet minimum requirements (students are then required to redo the assignment with scaffolding or re-teaching as needed)
* Satisfactory
* Exceeds Expectations
* Advanced

Common Core Anchor Standards in Writing:
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.CCRA.W.1 - Write arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics or texts using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.CCRA.W.2 - Write informative/explanatory texts to examine and convey complex ideas and information clearly and accurately through the effective selection, organization, and analysis of content.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Beginning of the Year: Getting to Know You Interviews”

by Just Go Teach
1st - 5th Grade


***Updated!!!**** April 2017

This is a cute activity that will help students get to know one another and you, as the teacher, will learn about all students. The great thing is, they will be doing all the work! 

Place the cards in a bag or container and have students pair up. Give each pair a "Bag of Questions". There is a decorative label for the bag included in this packet.They will pick out a question from the bag to ask their partner. Then their partner will pick a question from the bag to ask them. This continues until all questions are gone or until time is up.

Students will then return to their seats and write down what they learned about their "new friend" using sentences and pictures. They will present their writings to the class so every one can hear. 

This is also a great activity to use when you have new students enter your room throughout the year. 

Enjoy!
