Reflection: "Seventh Grade" Plot Paragraph - Section 4: Modeling and Reviewing the T3C Paragraph


Yes.  Yes, they will.  Not all of my students copy the quotes I chose, but some do.  The first writing assignment of the year is the one that is impacted the most by this, because for future stories, I can choose examples from texts that have already been read.  For this first major literary paragraph, I just have to suck it up and know that they'll use my example. And for that one, I check for accuracy in the quote.
