Reflection: Student Feedback Firsthand Account of My Life Changing Experience - Section 3: My Life Changing Event


My students were vocally grateful for the freedom from worrying too much about their writing being graded.  From their writing, it is apparent that  a couple of students took that a little too far and didn't write much.  The rest of the students were able to focus on content and have beautiful pieces of writing.  The couple of students who didn't write much are the ones who make me hesitate to say anything about the writing.  It is hard when you instantly demotivate those students.  I am going to have to think about my approach for next year.
