Working with a Rubric in Theater

Using a rubric for theater, teaching artist Jenny Campbell leads students in Ms. Wong’s class at PS 163Q through the process of creating scenes in small groups that take place in a vehicle. The students use the rubric to assess their progress and to assess and give feedback to their peers during presentation and performance.


  • Be clear and concise with the rubric criteria

  • Use the rubric for self, group and peer feedback

  • For each lesson, hone in on one or two areas of the rubric
