How to Access and Cite

Effective oral communication looks similar at the 2nd and 5th grade, although the sophistication of the topics discussed will change, as will the sophistication of student communication. In addition, the 2nd-grade rubric focuses on a slightly smaller set of indicators: the organization and language use dimensions were removed, as those are more appropriate for older oral communicators. Finally, it’s expected that at the earlier levels (Emerging and Developing), students will need some support to achieve the outcome.
