One thought on “Reading & Writing in Social Studies”

  1. Scott,

    Not sure if this email gets to your inbox.

    But if it does, attached is a single point rubric I made for MEAL paragraphs.

    (There are two boxes for open-ended questions and statements – that are

    for class discussions and thus not applicable to MEAL writing, per se)

    Hope you find it of some use.

    Enjoy!

    Jeremy
