Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Ethos, Logos and Pathos - Section 2: Active Engagment


This lesson is an example of the reason I have students do multiple drafts. If students were to use just one idea for this unit, then they would not be writing enough and/or would be bored with the topic.

Therefore, if they are revising on the second draft, then they can transfer their thinking to a third draft. In other words, if they are using what they learned on the first and second draft and are able to go through the writing process again with a third draft (while keeping the two focus skill in mind from the two other drafts), they are showing true transference of knowledge.

Additionally, if they really want to stick with one idea, I always give them that option, but they have to re-write the draft with the new focus skill I am teaching.
