Reflections from the Wrting Committee - 2015-2016

Thinking about our work on Narrative Writing Samples, as well as the reading we have done in Calkins' Writing Pathways, please take a few moments and reflect on ideas you have had about using the rubrics, benchmark papers, data, suggested teaching tools, and suggested teaching ideas in your classroom.  Please describe what you are planning on implementing and why.  If you have already implemented some changes or "tweaked" some practices, please include these.  

Choose what you think is most important to share with us.

Please complete them by January 18, 2016.

I look forward to reading these reflections.

  1. One thing I definitely want to implement is using checklists as a part of the goal-setting process. I’m thinking I would have students write a piece early in the year, either a short script or maybe a public speaking piece, and then we’ll work together to apply a checklist to that piece. Then I can help the students set goals for their theatre writing based on that checklist, and as we move through the year use the checklist to help them assess their progress toward their goals. I already have students set goals for theatre class starting in 4th grade, so this could be a part of that. I’m hoping implementing something like this would also help keep me accountable for incorporating more writing into theatre class, which is something I’ve been trying to do.
