Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Can a Caterpillar and a Gosling Be Friends? Day 1 of 2 - Section 6: Independent Writing


How did my students do with this writing assignment?

Let's look at their writing. In the writing piece, What Did You Learn About Geese? 4, the student writes a well organized paragraph about geese. There is good usage of commas. The student has some minor spelling errors, and organization can be improved.

Next, in the writing piece, What Did You Learn About Geese? 7, the student gives some good factual evidence of what she learned about geese. It makes the reading interesting. She is missing an opening and closing sentence, but there is good usage of vocabulary words.

The next piece, What Did You Learn About Geese? 9, the students gives another good factual account of geese. There are some minor spelling errors, and the penmanship can improve. But I am happy to see the integration of the knowledge of the goose with time order words.

Lastly, the piece, What Did You Learn About Geese? 10, offers much details about geese and ends with an opinion. I wonder why he thinks geese are crazy animals? I like his sentence that explains the word bill is another word for beak. That is a good connection for a reader. And, I like how he reference his notes, "according to my notes ..." He states that geese are important, I wished he elaborated on why they are important. Overall, a very good synthesis of his learning.

In engaging my students with informational text that supports a literary text, I want to help my students become savvy about picking out the fictional and nonfiction aspect of literary text.
