A rubric is typically an evaluation tool or set of guidelines used to promote the consistent application of learning expectations, learning objectives, or learning standards in the classroom. Rubrics are generally designed to be simple, explicit, and easily understood. Rubrics may help students see connections between learning (what will be taught) and assessment (what will be evaluated) by making the feedback they receive from teachers clearer, more detailed, and more useful in terms of identifying and communicating what students have learned or what they may still need to learn. (I found this definition here http://edglossary.org/rubric/)
In this page we can make some rubrics. It’s too easy! http://rubistar.4teachers.org/index.php
I made one. This example is in spanish, but you can do it in English. In my case, I decided that because I want to be sure my students understand and their parents too.

And this is a funny video about some problems that we have like students when we are learning english.
I found some pages in the web for learn grammar and new vocabulary. And I am surprised because there is a lot of material on line.
This page has a lot of tools for the web and we can change some of them for classes without internet.
I was thinking that Hangman is a good game for learn. We only put a clue (in this case the defination) and guess what word is about.
Today I am going to write something about grammar. After I saw some videos and read about grammar I think that it is necesary for us. We need to learn it.
I think that as a teacher I need to know a lot about grammar. And I have just one reason for that, it’s necesary to know what am I teaching to my students.
Sometimes for students is boring to learn grammar, and it’s because we don’t have interesting ways to teach it.
Obviuosly, our students need de grammar. They want to comunicate their ideas in other laguage, but for do it that, they need to know the correct form for to do it. So, the students need teachers that want to teach, but I don’t talk about to teach in a traditional way. I talk about of kind of teachers that we are able to create actvities and material for teaching them.
Movie Segments to assess Grammar is a great tool to teach grammar to our teens students. If I had the technology in my school I will use it. I hope soon put this into practice. I really like it because it’s a different way to teach, and the students can interact closer with the idiom. And all together have the opportunity to have fun watching movie segments.
Hi, every body!
