Reflection: Conferencing Setting Goals for Our Writing - Section 3: Writing Review and Goal Setting


This took a lot more time than I anticipated. I ended up having to call students up all period long, which was fine since my teaching partner had them working independently too. The thing is, the time was really well spent. I had great conversations with students about their writing and what kinds of goals were attainable. I had them fill in goal cards, similar to those we did with reading goals earlier in the year, and will keep those as references for future assignments, mini-lessons or grading.
