Reflection: Checks for Understanding Editing and Revising Compare and Contrast Text Structures - Section 2: Active Engagement


I always have to remind students that I want to see their thinking in their writing. When I teach or remind students about annotating, I tell them I should see a messy paper! I want to see their thinking and where they made corrections. I should have shown students an example of this while I reminded them today in the lesson opener.

When I was conferring with students and saw  that many were erasing or trying too hard to make their writing neat, I stopped and showed a student example of the messiness I expect! I have to remember to constantly remind to show me their thinking or how will I know what they are thinking?
