Yearbook Participation Rubric
I have my students complete this as a self-assessment at the end of each week. I review their self-assessment and make changes when/if necessary based on my observations of the students during class. I enter this as a bi weekly participation grade, which is 40% of their semester grade. I have participation rated so highly in my yearbook course because collaboration and working as a team is KEY to getting the yearbook completed on time and meeting our deadlines. This rubric can be adjusted to meet many needs for a variety of classes where participation is being assessed.
My yearbook class is a full year course for grades 9-12 that meets 2-3 times a week for 80 minute periods.
