10
rubric checks on: rough works cited, notes on research questions, rough draftDelineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text - assessing whether the reasoning is valid and the evidence is relevant and sufficient; identify false statements and fallacious reasoning.Develop claim(s) and counterclaims fairly - supplying evidence for each while pointing out the strengths and limitations of both in a manner that anticipates the audience’s knowledge level and concerns.Evaluate a speaker’s point of view and reasoning and use of evidence and rhetoric - identifying any fallacious reasoning or exaggerated or distorted evidence.Use a semicolon (and perhaps a conjunctive adverb) to link two or more closely related independent clauses.
