Fort Osage Assessment for Learning Activities
A) Persuasive/Argumentative Essay Rubric
Submitted by: Dr. Jason Morton
For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
I have begun working on one student-friendly scoring guide for reflection/assessment by the student, peers, and the teacher. It leaves no doubt in student’s minds as to what is expected for proficiency and puts more of an onus on students to revise and edit their work before submitting a “final” draft.

For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
In art, I put artwork on the board and have students rate each piece. 1-4 focusing on a specific learning target. Then we discuss why they gave their numbers (will use another classes’ artwork-no names are showing) so they are more objective.

For more information contact email@example.com
All of the classes as the CTC are using the Journaling Exercises book that has a place for student writing on the left side and a built-in and visible scoring guide on the right hand side. This system is helping the school to have consistent and clear expectations for writing across the school.
