The state has also published updated writing rubrics for the 2013-2014 Writing TCAP. The new rubrics are grouped by grades and type of writing. The rubric can be found here. The state has also released a ELA K-12/Literacy Curricular Guide to help teacher transition to Common Core. Click here to find the guide. I hope everyone is having a great summer!
