I am assuming that you already know how to create a rubric yourself, and that you are merely asking how to teach the specifics to your students. I've found that the best way to do so is to create a rubric yourself covering something the students would find interesting. For example, in an English class you create a rubric judging what makes a good author. In a History class, you could make a rubric about what makes a good leader. Or you could simply use something the students can relate to. A professor of mine taught us how to create rubrics by guiding us through a rubric of what makes a good superhero. This works because it is an interesting topic that keeps the students invested. If they are paying attention, it will be easy to teach them the fine points of how a rubric goes together.

This is an interesting reflection from a teacher who just did this with her students: https://www.teachervision.com/teaching-methods-and-management/rubrics/4586.html
The classic method for introducing a topic is to:
1) Access prior knowledge--do they know what a rubric is, its purpose and objective
2) Determine what is not a rubric and what is a rubric--components of a rubric and how it is made
3) model for the students how one is made--give them a demonstration of how to make one
4) Class activity--have the students make one or two in groups or individually
5) Assess their understanding--a short quiz or one or two question quiz
6) Reflection--what do the students think of it?
