Reflection: Unit Planning Beginning to the End: Writing an Introduction and Conclusion - Section 2: Main Activity


Although this lesson is about writing introductions and conclusions, it is around this time that students are writing or finishing their drafts. They can start writing their drafts of parts of their drafts any time after the organizing their writing lesson. Some students will have all of the information they need very early on and I encouage them to finish their draft by this lesson. Others will have parts of it finish but are still looking for specific and factual data to use in their writing. Those students my include their introduction and conclusion before finishing their draft. It doesn't really matter where they are at in the drafting process, just as long as they are wrapping it up by the end of this lesson.
