Thanks a lot for writing this! 58 new cards added to my Anki deck! I'll probably read some bits of the book once I have digested them a little (especially chapters 4, 5 and 7).

Silly question, what exactly is meant by "rubric"? Is it just highlighting part of a text in bold (or in color)?

A rubric is a tool for assessment. It identifies criterion for evaluating work by identifying the categories of achievement and the measurements of levels of achievement in each category. This seems like a basic summary with examples: http://learnweb.harvard.edu/alps/thinking/docs/rubricar.htm

Thanks, that's useful, I didn't know there was a word for that!
