Journals are a great way to get students to write, but they are a pain to grade! And there's the catch--if you don't grade them, they stop putting forth any effort. That's where this journal check rubric helps. It's a quick way for teachers to fly through checking journals, while providing more feedback than just a check. This is especially useful for high school and middle school teachers who can easily have over 100 journals to grade at any given time.
