I've taken a look at these rubrics and my opinion: Good! The only change I'd make is to address some of the grade-specific grammar and usage standards.

Kristen Suarez's curator insight, February 3, 2014 9:34 PM

Here are some CCSS writing rubrics that are aligned to all grade levels. Very comprehensive as far as the writing standards go, but they do not quite include measures for grammar and mechanics. Still worth a look!

Heather Peretz's curator insight, November 1, 2013 7:43 PM

"Assistive technology in K-12 classrooms, by definition, is designed to "improve the functional capabilities of a child with a disability." While the word "technology" automatically conjures up images of cutting-edge electronics, some assistive technology is possible with just simple accommodations. Whether high-tech or simple in design, assistive technology has the ability to transform the learning experiences for the children who benefit." 

Leveling the playing field for kids with special needs is so important and can be done with more ease than ever with the technology available today.

Students need to be taught how to read complex texts. One of the strategies for learning how is close reading. It slows the reader down to notice and ponder more. It also connects meaning and builds sytems of thought.
