Using Rubrics to Support the Craft and Conventions of Writing

Audience: Faculty and Literacy Coaches, grades K-5

As writers grow and develop, they need support in both the craft and conventions of writing. In this webinar, participants will dig into this topic as we consider how rubrics can be used to inform our teaching and support student growth. Several rubrics will be shared as we consider the ways teachers might use these tools with students and how they can be applied across multiple genres.

This webinar is for faculty and literacy coaches, grades K-5.
