Shayne Swift's insight:
good read I definitely agree that exemplars and rubrics work well together. the sample is helpful is teasing out the specifics of the rubric. I also think there are good and bad rubrics. Annotation of rubrics is a good strategy as well so students understand the nuances among the descriptors.
