Reflection: Student Portfolios Comparative Writing on Film and Text Version of Choice Read - Section 2: Students Write individually/Interviews


Roughly 70% of the students were able to complete this task with little help from me, and some of these spent extra time at home and in study hall the next day in order to get the level of detail to a reasonable level.  Here, an example The Help Book Vs. Movie reveals a high degree of investment in the work and in the class.  In this case, the student has been committed to high quality work all year, and the book itself motivated her to write well.
