Speaking and Writing Rubrics

In our last post, we offered a short communication rubric to give to students or hang up in your classroom to motivate students to work at a higher proficiency level. Today, we are posting our Writing and Speaking rubric that we adapted from the Jefferson Public County Schools’ rubrics that are connected with the ACTFL proficiency levels.

Our goal this year is to have a communicative classroom and assess our students in an appropriate measure of what they can actually do.

Also, before each unit/chapter we will be handed out a list of objectives for the students. This will be divided into two sections: lenguaje and cultura and will be written as ‘I can statements’. We intend to have students self-assess themselves on this sheet at a level of high, mid, or low and use these same objectives for their formal assessments, which will be graded using the rubrics from above.
