This rubric will be scored based on five categories: Introduction, Argument, Performance, Conclusion, and Overall Delivery.
This lesson is the best tool you could use to design your rubric for assessing students' persuasive speeches.
It will be specific enough to help set expectations for your students while general enough so that you can make changes to fit a variety of persuasive speech activities.
As mentioned, it will use a 4 point scale: exceeds expectations, meets expectations, satisfactory, and needs improvement.
Exceeds Expectations: Student introduced argument effectively and clearly laid out the various points that would be discussed Meets Expectations: Student introduced argument and laid out the various points that would be discussed Satisfactory: Student introduced argument but did not lay out any points that would be discussed Needs Improvement: No introduction Checklist question: Did I write a clear introduction that effectively lays out each point I am going to address in my speech?
