Reflection: Online Resources Revisiting a lesson - Section 2: Model


Modeling revision with an actual text that students can compare their work to is very important. Sometimes I use my own writing, within the same genre, to model the work I want students to do. However, some students disconnect and think that they can't compare their writing with mine because I'm an adult and they are a child. I also don't want to take away the practice of writing from a student in order to use their writing to provide the class an appropriate example. The best case scenario is to use a draft from a previous year as a model. If you have not taught a unit like this or cannot find a draft then you might find one online such as at the Oregon State Department Of Education website where they have copies of writing 4th grade students have done for the state test. There are many other websites as well for other genres, if necessary.
