Infographic Rubrics: Post #3 Skill Specific Research Rubrics Series

Most of us prefer to take information in visually.
We also prefer to take in information in tiny bits.

So, we teach students to convey information mainly through written papers and presentation programs, such as Google Slides or PowerPoint. While I absolutely advocate mastering both of those skills, I argue that we must also teach students how to master visual communication skills.

I have posted Allison Burley’s infographic lesson on my blog before. However, at our high school, we have seniors create them for senior research and our freshmen now have an expectation to create an infographic during their career research.

We have created skill-specific research rubrics for students to pinpoint important elements of an infographic (both of which are linked below):

We also have a modified rubric that we use with students who struggle with learning.

Feel free to use either one with your students.
Good luck!
