Rebecca Newburn, a science teacher from California, shares a step-by-step guide to writing CERs in her weekly slideshow and accompanying checklists. “The first CER, about ocean currents, has a scaffolded claim so if you want to see a CER explained from the beginning go to the second CER, slide 29, CER Ocean Density and Salinity.” She also shares her CER rubric that is based on the one NSTA made with additions of colors and other criteria.
