Reflection: Homework Composing a Final Draft - Section 3: Independent Practice


What you see at class, is what you see at home.

Writing stamina (and reading stamina for that matter) are so important to practice in class. If they don't learn how to problem solve in order to get their work completed in class or are easily distracted in class, most likely this is the same problem they are having at home.

This is why I have my students start completing their final in class, so I can problem solve or help them practice what I want to see when they are not in a classroom.
