Reflection: Essay Writing Outlining Does a Body Good - Section 3: Application: Outlining


When my students were writing their body paragraph, I spent time reteaching or giving some kind of feedback to each student. My goal was to "check in" with every single student to make sure they were on the right track. This was exhausting--but in a good way. It can be a bit chaotic when multiple students want my attention or have a question, but I simply moved through them as quickly and efficiently as possible. I think I have set the expectation that they should be patient because I will get to everyone. In the future, it might be a good idea to map out how many students I need to see and how many minutes I can spend with each of them (with the understanding that I will need to be flexible for students that need more or less support with their writing). Either way, I found this to be an excellent use of time.
