Since writing in a table is proving to not be a user-friendy feature of Wikispaces, maybe we could work on the different descriptions in text form. We can then cut and paste them later into a table, if needed.
I've pasted descriptions from other digital storytelling rubrics and put them in italics. Some of them don't really go well. Please wordsmith or change completely and then change back to regular text. If you need to discuss anything, we can use the discussion tab above, if you wish.
