Reflection: Conferencing Writing Fluid Prose: Revisions and Consultation - Section 2: Revisions/One on One Consultation

 

Today was a surprisingly quiet day; the students took a little while to get focused, but once they did they did not have a lot of questions.  A couple students asked me to review their work, particularly their first drafts, and also to help them build their ideas with the theme/rheme analysis.  However, most of them were just busy, so I’m cautiously optimistic that they will be in a good space tomorrow for peer review.
