Reflection: Exit Tickets Serial Writing: Getting the First Words On Paper - Section 3: Exit Tickets


I found the exit tickets to be so helpful. Sometimes I wonder if I assume too much about their reactions to a text or activity, but I wanted to make sure I was on the same page with them for this project, especially since writing can be so emotional and personal. Letting someone critique your imagination is hard! And it would be even harder if you didn't want to write anything in the first place.

Unanimously, the class likes this project because they are free to write about whatever they want. It sounds like they haven't been given this opportunity in years. The challenges are more diverse. Many cite organization as the most difficult part, while others are struggling more with the writing style. Nonetheless, they were able to ask their questions and concerns directly after writing, when these thoughts are fresh. Therefore, I am excited to think through ways to help them next class.
