Quick Write Rubric

A Quick Write is a short written response (2-10 minutes) to an open-ended question or prompt. This strategy is an excellent way for students to practice responding to an open-ended question that is connected to a text. 

Strategy Steps:
  1. Students read a text.
  2. The teacher provides an open-ended question, such as "What is the most important thing you learned about Percy in Chapter 1? How did the author show this about Percy? Write in complete sentences and provide one specific example as evidence from the text."
  3. Depending on the question, give students 2 to 10 minutes to write their response.

You can choose not to grade quick writes, or you can use a rubric to grade quick writes quickly. You can download the quick write rubric I use with my students below.
