I am ending our Stretch & Explore section on my lesson plans. I am going to introduce my students to a single point rubric. I have learned a few things about using rubrics. I was tired of students just randomly selecting a number and having no actual thought or reflection about their art. It was silly! I came across the idea of a single point rubric from the Cult of Pedagogy website. I ran with this idea. I liked the idea of only presenting students with the highest achievement or criteria possible. Also, they have to write and be reflective. I added a grade section below for the students to write in what grade they think they deserve based on their reflection.
Stretch & Explore Single Point Rubric
Here is my single point SHoM rubric. I use it two-three times a year with 4-5th grade. I try to get them to write a sentence to explain each side. I did not require them to fill out the whole paper, but to focus on 2-3 habits instead. I have a blank box for the grade near the bottom. I tell them to put the grade they think they deserve. I will conference with them sometimes over these. I have 120-130 students that complete these making it hard to find time to conference with each student.
