Rubric For A 5 Paragraph Essay

We have now witnessed, worked with and discussed five forms of Ruby Bridges' story.  Today the students will begin to write about the connections they've made with each form and evaluate the effectiveness of each to tell the story.

This is going to be an interesting essay for my kiddos as they have NEVER done anything like it before.  We never had a standard before that dealt with different media presentations of a text. In order to make it easier on my students, I wanted to develop a good graphic organizer to give them as much support as I could so that they would be able to focus on the content of the presentations.

When the students enter the classroom today, I tell them about the assignment and we begin to make the rubric.  After we create the rubric, I hand out the graphic organizer and we discuss it.  The graphic organizer is in the form of cards.  I have students cut out each card and put their name on the back.  The reason I made it in card form is so that the students don't get overwhelmed.  A five paragraph essay is a lot for them so my hope is that by looking at one paragraph at a time, students will be less overwhelmed.
