>Dana, I had to start using rubrics and found they work best if you keep
them
>simple. Define your main criteria and keep the point system simple.
>For example, I do a unit of perspective with my 7th grade classes. My
>rubric looks like this:
>
>Name: Class Code Term
>
>Points possible____ (I use a 10 point scale and equate it to a 100 point
>scale)
>
>1) Accurate linear perspective including vanishing points and lines and
eye
>level line. 2 points
>possible (or 1 2 3 4 5-circle one)
>
>2) Use of aerial perspective and parts of a landscape. 2 points possible
>
>3) Elaboration: use of supporting detail to create viewer interest. 2
>points possible.
>
>4) Use of extensions (things that project from the building). 4 minimum.
>2 pts.
>
>5) Neatness and/or craftsmanship
>
>Related writing assignment:
>1) 10 points possible for a poem or Haiku related to your drawing. Must
>follow rules as set forth by language classes.
>
>2) 20 points possible for a short story about your drawing. 3 page
>minimum.
>Must observe spelling, punctuation and rules of grammar.
>
>Poems, stories or Haikus must be word processed and mounted with your
>drawing.
>
>Dana, this is one example. I write my rubrics on the chalkboard and have
>students write it on the back of their work. Sometimes I have them score
>their own work. They usually grade tougher than I would so I balance the
>final grade between my scoring and theirs. I only xerox rubrics for 3-d
>work where there is no room for them to write. Obviously, I'm trying to
use
>the reading and writing across the curriculum ideas in the art room. It's
>given additional academic veracity to the building perception of the art
>program, though that hasn't been a real problem for me in this building.
>Hope this helps you out. You don't have to use a rubric for everything,
and
>you can include practice work or preliminary planning into a unit rubric
>rather than individual lesson rubrics.
