Reflection: High Quality Task Final Draft Time - Section 1: Why this Lesson?


I truly believe that having students complete finals drafts is a task that teaches them something! When students finish a final draft, they not only have pride in their finished piece of work, but they also have ownership of that work.  I love making students accountable for a final, presentable and good piece of writing!  After students have done all of the steps (brainstorming, rough drafting, conferencing, editing and revising) and are able to create their final draft, they really have knowledge about the topic form their writing and also can see the great benefits of their hard work.
