Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Organizing our Last Essay - Section 1: Lesson Opener


When students are brainstorming possible angles, I am pushing them to write through the lens of a different angle than the one they use on the last essay if they were successful with it. For example if a student choose author's craft, but did show deep analytical thinking, I will show the student(s) how to improve their writing from the last essay. I am naming the moves they did as a writer and having them think about how to raise their analysis in this essay. I will point out to them the prompts we have been using or their write longs or seminar papers which have a lot of writing about the stories in them.
