How Successful Teachers Avoid Common Pitfalls

persuasion speech rubric

A common pitfall most teachers experience is thinking they must create everything for their classes all by themselves. Au Contraire!

So here’s the deal.  If you are a teacher and you haven’t discovered, you need to do so pronto!

Like most people, we do our best work when we help each other.  Many years ago when I first began in my teaching career, other teachers were not so keen to help you.

Now we know helping one another is the key to success. I really enjoy sharing with other teachers and having them share with me.  We’re all in this together, right? is a wonderful site with templates for various assignments.  Trust me–this site will save you loads of time and time needs to be on your side not against you.

Here is my persuasion speech rubric, FREE.

Note:  This particular rubric was created at and then I downloaded to my document folders.

I created it for college level students in a Fundamental of Speech class.  It could easily be adapted for younger students.

I’d love to know how it works out for you.

Remember, we teachers are all in this together.  Until next time.
