Book Study for Building Better Rubrics
First, you need to purchase a digital download (editable) or hard copy of the book!

In addition to the book study, both AAC members and non-members gain access to editable templates of multiple rubric formats. Interested educators can book an AAC consultant to facilitate the book study modules. The book study is offered over 4 hours and each module is one hour.
