This rubric can be used to: • Review existing lessons and units on the Washington OER Hub and/or in the classroom for quality, alignment to Washington State Learning Standards, and readiness for Dual Language settings. • Inform the development of new lessons and units in either language of instruction across content areas. • Build the capacity of educators to evaluate and improve the quality of instructional materials for use in their classrooms and programs.
