Workshop resources are located here within a Google docs folder. The folder allows educators to share rubric examples with each other. Each example offers a title, grade level, and course name, as well as the school of origin. Examples are not perfect, but each shows growth. Nicole will discuss these examples during the workshop. Please do not type into the documents within the folder, as this changes them for everyone. You are encouraged to download and revise materials, but please note the original author and school.
