Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Using Linking Words - Section 2: Independent Practice


One of my goals as a teacher is to have student apply what they have learned to other tasks independently. This was the case with the use of linking words. Students were writing thank you letters to the rain forest in science. One student included linking words twice in her writing (circled). I attribute this not only to the lesson, but the constant presence of the linking chart I’d posted. It served as a reminder to students what we had learned, why we learned it, and how it was to be applied.
