Reflection: Student Ownership Organizing a Third Draft - Section 4: Independent Practice


As shown from my videos, I give students choice whenever possible. In the first video one student annotates on the text for their evidence while another writes in their organizer. In another video the partner group found their evidence first, then worked backwards with and devised their reasons.

This can make conferences difficult sometimes I do not have my own example to show the students. When this happens I either make an example up on the spot, use a partners or use their text and come up with my own idea. I try as much as possible not to give them leading questions, but to show them my thinking or a partner's thinking.
