Reading Comprehension - Speaking and Writing on-Benchmark Responses
Writing in 1st grade - What should it LOOK like?
These are some of the writing standards we will be working towards all year long. These are posted in our classroom, so every student is familiar with the rubric for scoring written responses to their text level.
Level 3 - Proficient
1.) Response has at least 2 or 3 supporting details.
2.) Answer is on-topic and uses evidence from the text, not prior knowledge.
3.) All parts of the question are addressed.
4.) Use names, places, and be specific.
5.) Depending on the question, answer has 4 or more sentences.
Level 2 - Almost proficient (still a passing score).
1.) Not specific. Uses "they," "there," "it was," instead of names and places.
2.) Answer has at least 1 supporting detail.
3.) Addresses part of the question, but not all areas.
4.) Evidence is off topic, or not from the text.
5.) Answer should have at least 3-4 sentences.
Level 1 - Not Proficient (not passing score).
1.) Answer has no supporting details, is very broad.
2.) Response answers part of the question, but leaves most unclear.
3.) Writing is quick or rushed - 1 or 2 sentences.
4.) Answer is off topic, from your head, and not demonstrating that the reader understood the text.
