Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Writing: Hear with the Ear - Section 2: Independent Practice


The beauty of the design of this particular lesson is the connection to prior knowledge. Students applied skills learned in previous lessons on opening sentences, concluding statements, and grammar to this task. Only a few needed to be reminded to add a concluding statement. When asked what they did well, one student wrote that she corrected her grammar. That was a pivotal moment because grammar has been a year-long challenge for my English language learners. Students demonstrated their growth as writers at this point in the year by incorporating all that they have learned.
