Reflection: Conferencing Evaluating Argument: There are Two Sides to Every Story (2 of 2) - Section 4: Essay turn in


Holy Cow, I love conferring with students.  I learn so much!  Today, I learned that my students really have some complex opinions about this topic.  One student, who was writing very simplistically and dry, explained to me in great depth why he strongly opposes the death penalty.  It was through that conference, that I understood this student has a personal connection to this topic and I helped him use that experience to make his counterclaim fantastic.
