Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Recounting Farfallina & Marcel Day 1 of 2 - Section 4: Recounting: The Beginning and Ending


How did the students do with the recounting? Let's look at some samples. How did they do with the beginning?

In the writing piece, Recounting the Beginning 4, the student gives good details from the story and does tell the key details of how Farfallina & Marcel meet and where and when. The recounting needs organization, though.

The next piece, Recounting The Beginning 5, gives the key details of the beginning by detailing information on how the characters meet and where and who is who. There are some spelling errors that we will need to work on, though.

The writing piece, Recounting The Ending 7 , gives a good summary of the ending. There are spelling errors and the words there are misspelled could have written accurately if the student had referred back to the book or asked for help.

Finally, the writing piece, Recounting The Ending 8, the student does a very good job of recounting the key details: what has happened to the characters, where they are, and what is happening next.

Overall, the students did well with the beginning in getting at the key details. They struggled more with the ending. I did ask them to refer back to the last page if they were still unsure.
