Reflection: Essay Writing The Writer's Memo for the Life Proposal Essay - Section 3: Submission


Though I only assessed a few standards in this essay, I still looked for and commented on other aspects of writing, just as I've done all year. Only officially assessing (that is, giving a score and explanation) a few standards saves me time and sanity as a teacher, but that doesn't mean my students shouldn't be accountable for quality writing skills not assessed. They need to learn that no matter the writing task I or another teacher asks of them, basics like clear topic sentences and logical proof transcend. One must always prove one's point.
