  • 15. 1 2 3 4 5 The claim I make a claim and explain why it is controversial I make a claim but donít explain why itís controversial  My claim is buried, confused, and/or unclear. I donít say what my argument or claim is. Reasons in support of the claim I give clear and accurate reasons in support of my claim. I give reasons in support of my claim, but I overlook important reasons. I give 1 or 2 weak reasons that donít support my claim, and/or irrelevant or confusing reasons. I donít give reasons in support of my claim. Reasons against the claim I discuss the reasons against my claim and explain why it is valid anyway. I discuss the reasons against my claim but neglect some or donít explain why the claim still stands. I say that there are reasons against the claim, but I donít discuss them. I donít acknowledge or discuss the reasons against the claim. Organization My writing has a compelling opening, an informative middle, and a satisfying conclusion. My writing has a beginning, a middle, and an end. My organization is rough but workable. I may sometimes get off topic. My writing is aimless and disorganized. Voice and tone It sounds like I care about my argument. I tell how I think and feel about it. My tone is OK, but my paper could have been written by anyone. I need to tell how I think and feel. My writing is bland or pretentious. There is either no hint of a real person in it, or it sounds like Iím faking it. My writing is too formal or informal. It sounds like I donít like the topic of the essay. Word choice The words that I use are striking but natural, varied and vivid. I make some fine and some routine word choices. The words that I use are often dull or uninspired, or sound like Iím trying too hard to impress I use the same words over and over. Some words may be confusing or used incorrectly. Sentence My sentences are clear, complete, and of varying lengths. My sentences are well-constructed. My essay marches along, but doesnít dance. My sentences are often awkward, run-ons, or fragments. Many run-on sentences and sentence fragments make my essay hard to read. Conventions I use correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling I have a few errors to fix, but I generally use correct conventions. I have enough errors in my essay to make my paper distract a reader. Numerous errors make my paper hard to read.
