Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines It's The Hour of Triumph! - Section 4: Writing Response: Why Is This the Hour of Triumph For Charlotte?


How did my students do with the writing assignment?

Let's look at a few samples. First, in the piece, Why Is This The Hour of Triumph? 3, the student points out Charlotte's plan works. I find it interesting she uses the word prank. She uses it correctly to state how she fools everyone into believing that Wilbur is terrific, radiant, magnificent and some pig!

Next, in the piece, WhyIsThisTheHourofTriumph?8, I am struck by her last sentence. The first sentence basically states similar things as the above. But her last sentence states how Charlotte wrote special words, and now Wilbur is those words. She is getting an important point that we become what we believe.

In the piece, WhyIsThisTheHourOfTriumph?2, I see the work prank again. This time written as a verb, pranking. The student doesn't explain how Charlotte pranked the people. The student basically lists how Charlotte saves Wilbur.

Lastly, in the piece WhyisThisTheHourofTriumph?9, the student writes how the words written on the web meant something. I wished he had expanded on this idea. He ends his writing with how Charlotte did not write the word crunchy. Yeah, that would not have been a good word to write on the web.

I feel my students understood the power of words Charlotte used on the web because they made the difference in saving Wilbur's life.
