Reflection: High Expectations What do you do at Night? - Section 2: Activity

 

For this lesson one of my goals was for the students to really expand on their sentences. I wanted them to explore adding details to their sentence to make it more informative. You can see this is in one of the video clips I up loaded of my discussion with the two girls at the work station. One student had to be really urged along whereas the second student picked up on the idea very quickly.

I really want my students to see the value and importance of adding as much information to their writing as possible. This expectation helps the students develop the skill to make sure their reading audience is getting all of the information to have a clearer understanding of what the writer is expressing.
