Reflection: Relevance Making Tense II...taking the present to the future. - Section 3: Closure

 

Writing can't always be student choice- they need guidelines and must show their ability to write to a topic, but wow- it's so much fun for them when they're channeling things they're interested in.  Writing about Middle School in the future was possibly the easiest writing assignment they did all year.

My only regret is that I had them write SHORT narratives.  Because it wasn't the objective of my lesson, I wasn't really thinking about it as the lesson progressed.  Next year, I'll certainly have them expand their narratives during this lesson, or do a separate lesson about what their expectations and/or fears of middle school are.
