Chocolate Chip Cookies and Rubrics
Helping Students Understand Rubrics
As we discussed, rubrics have many benefits but they are also pretty abstract for some students. Students of all ages do not always fully understand how they are being graded or how a rubric works!

The solution: If they understand it, they can use it!
Why do they need an activity?
"Students in inclusive settings can more readily participate when they understand the expectations and grading process"
Self-evaluation skills can be generalized to all areas in all grades
In some preservice teacher education classes, instructors provide models of use by providing future teachers with rubrics for each assignment. The purpose is to guide the future teachers in developing and completing their own work.
Why a cookie?
It does not have to be a cookie! Depending on your grade level and the nutritional policy (we have health teachers in the room:) it can be adapted to fit your content and age level.

Last night I was at the grocery store and there are way too many brands of chocolate chip cookies. I had no idea which type was the best so I bought them all. Let's brainstorm qualities by which we can judge these cookies?
