What is it? This rubric helps teachers guide students in grades K-2 in using creativity and innovation in a project, and can be used to assess their performance. This rubric is aligned with CCSS, but also can be used in non-CCSS settings.
Why do we like it? Creativity is a difficult quality to describe, but we think this rubric is clear and concrete, and aligns with our rubrics for older students.
How can you use it? In addition to guiding and assessing students, this rubric reinforces the idea for children that there are steps in the process of creating something new. Schools and districts can adopt or adapt this rubric for use across all classrooms.
