Reflection: Complex Tasks Writing A Topic & Concluding Paragraph for the Essay (Day 3 of 3) - Section 5: Students Take A Turn


As I'm teaching this lesson, there are grammar skills in their writing that need remediation. The focus of the lesson is not grammar, but I can't miss this teachable moment. I believe it's fine to prompt kids to capitalize a word, add a punctuation mark, or make a contraction (as I did in this video when I reviewed the concept of contractions) while they're writing, as long as it does not become a grammar lesson that takes away from the writing focus.
