Reflection: Advanced Students Determining the Introduction - Section 4: Independent Writing


I’m blessed to have a few students with exceptional writing abilities their year. I look forward to reading their work and hearing their creative ideas come to life! This friend is one who always finishes before the rest of the class. After he finished his plot map notes, I encouraged him to try crafting an introduction paragraph that incorporated his setting details with a character description. After hearing this introduction, I can’t wait to see what he does next!
