Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Ending as Strong as You Started: Writing Climax and Resolutions - Section 3: Independent Learning


Students now work on their own endings to their version of our story. I leave the resources projected on the board and walk around reading over shoulders and helping where needed to make sure they stay on task. Mine did not have much difficulty with this part because they had identified, read and written one together. Two difficulties they faced were wanting to leave their endings open so they could write a second chapter and writing too much in their endings. In this clip I share my ideas and solutions for each and a way to add this into your center work.
