Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Who Are the People of the Arctic Tundra? Day 2 of 3 - Section 6: Independent Writing


Students tend to do better when they enjoy something, and my students like this story. They did a good job meeting the task of providing evidence for what happened.

This student writing provides a really good summary. This particular student's writing has evolved from being all over the place to being very focused.

I was very pleased by this student's writing. This student usually doesn't finish on time and has to finish his work after lunch. But today, he provided a good summary of this part of the story. Yes, he needs to add a question mark to the first sentence and there are some spelling and grammar errors, but these errors do not impede his comprehension or his expression of key details. I made sure to let him know I was proud of his accomplishment. We need to celebrate all wins with our students!

The next writing piece shows a good beginning. It is written neatly and includes good use of time-order words. I also like the use of vocabulary words. The paragraph makes sense as a whole, which is progress for this student.

This final student piece also make logical sense, which also progress for this student, who had been struggling with recounting. She consistently misspelled time-order words in previous writing samples, so I made sure to point out where the words were written in the classroom for her to model. I am glad she is paying closer attention. But again, despite errors, her writing demonstrates that she understands what has happened in the text.
