Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Putting the PIeces Together: Develping Claims for Othello Literary Analysis Paper (Day 3 of 3) - Section 3: Drafting on Notecards


I know I mentioned yesterday that my teaching partner and I should be kicked in the shins for our terrible timing. They've done okay in seeing how the writing techniques apply across both of our contents, but they are having to do a lot of big thinking about two very different tasks and it is making their heads smoke.

For example, after giving them 20 minutes of work time with their note cards, I started to get the same question from multiple students about how to frame their intros. My advice to start in the middle was apparently unheeded. So I stopped the whole class and did a quick reminder about about what I meant by my terms (intro, body, conclusion) and how to tackle each.
