Reflection: Pacing Author Readings - Section 4: Author Shares


Although I devote an entire writing period one day for our “author presentations”, there is no way all students can share in one day. I explain this to students before we even begin sharing so that feelings aren’t hurt and those who don’t get to share aren’t disappointed. Over the next few days, I’ll have a student or two share each day until everyone has read. This gives us something to look forward to after that initial share day.
