Self Evaluation Rubric:
  • In each category at the top of the rubric, read the assessment score description below and select the phrase, which best describes your work.  Honest, self-reflective assessment results in higher-level thinking and understanding. 
  • You may choose to self-evaluate the lessons in total once your writing is complete, or for more thorough assessment, evaluate each step of the lesson.
Your final evaluation will be your improved future narrative scores, as well as teacher observation of your work ethics resulting in an "Approaches Work Conscientiously" and "Manages Time Wisely" grade.  Do your best and get excited about improving your overall writing skills.  Refer to the Brown Barge Narrative Teacher Evaluation Rubric at the bottom of the page to help you "begin with the end in mind."

Write from your experience. Incorporate the prompt to make your thesis or topic clear and give meaningful evidence to support it.

I was able to identify your thesis or topic, but I still have questions.  Use more details and examples so I don’t have to fill in the gaps about what the experience means to you.

Your thesis or topic is crystal clear, and you support it with full, rich details. I have a good understanding of what the experience means to you.

Before you write, use a graphic organizer to plan a beginning, middle and end. Develop your ideas into paragraphs.

You have a beginning, middle and end, but your ideas could be connected with more transitions. Also, you need a more grabbing lead and/or a more meaningful ending.

Your writing is as clear as a road map. Your sequence of events or explanations is logical and you use transition words effectively.
