Reflection: Pre-Tests The Writing Process through Assessment - Section 3: Practice


This is a lesson that is really an assessment. Although I'm not actively teaching students how to do something, I am reminding them of knowledge that they should already have about writing. Its a fine balance of encouraging students to reflect on what they already know and encourage them to use that knowledge while at the same time, really seeing what they can do before you teach them specific skills.

For example, some students have heard of the writing process and some have not, even though they participated in parts of the process in previous school years. Some of them know that writers work on and change parts of their writing, this is called revision.
