Abstract

The research question addressed in this project was, how can I create a developmentally appropriate rubric for Writer's Workshop in the Kindergarten Classroom? This project focused on the effectiveness of using rubrics to assess writers and to communicate expectations. The author created a rubric using research based on Neuman's developmental stages of writing and Calkin's and Ray's methods of Writer's Workshop. She used student work samples and academic standards to create a framework for the rubric. She then describes the completed rubric, the key components and the process used to create a developmentally appropriate rubric to assess kindergarten writing.
