Reflection: Pacing Nautical Narratives: Writing Our Own Ocean Tales - Section 5: Review


As you see, I've written one lesson for today for writing.  However, based on the writers I have in my classroom, sometimes I need to stretch this lesson out another day or two, because kids simply need more time to write.  And, for others, I may have to give them even more time, so it’s a really a process.  I think it's important to allow the students the opportunity to develop their narrative as much as they'd like to, so I try not to rush that process.  This is just a short piece however, so I try to help the students wrap it up if needed, but please note that you may find you need to give your students some more time to write, and I think that's great!
