    My school, located in New York State,  is implementing the Seal of Biliteracy and I am wondering if anyone else has had experience doing the same.  Our department is looking for guidance in developing rubrics to grade the essay/project/portfolio criteria as well as guidance for the final interview for when students present said essay/project/portfolio.  Thanks!

    Google and see if New York state has implemented guidelines for schools.  If they haven't, I would contact your state Language Association to see if they have any guidelines in place.  If you need help, Trey Calvin ( is a great resource.
