Today’s Word: rubric (noun) – Rubric (ROO-brik) has several definitions. It can be a statement of purpose or function. It can be a set of authoritative or well-established rules, traditions, or instructions. Most commonly, it is a title/heading under which something operates or is studied. Example from Neri Oxman, the American-Israeli architect, designer, and professor: “When I came to MIT, there were four rubrics: science, art, design, and technology. And as you entered your degree, whether it was a master’s or a Ph.D., if you were a citizen in one domain, you were a traveler in the other.”
