Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Editorial Publishing Party: Celebrating our Success and Submitting to a Contest - Section 3: Submitting to a Contest

 

 Submitting to a contest is a great way for students to understand their writing is worthy of sharing. I have found that when other people read their essays, students develop intrinsic motivation to write well. Although none of my students won the contest, we did take some time to read the winning essays. When I asked the students about submitting to the contest, they were very positive about the experience.  

Having a publishing party is a great way to celebrate writing! My students were awesome today and they love the party.  I'm glad I asked them to write a letter to their reader.  It helped the writer reflect on the process and on their own writing.  

  My students didn't win, but submitting to a contest is awesome!
