Reflection: Student Ownership Let's Share a Slice... of Life - Section 3: Sharing Our Writing


It was really fun to listen to everyone's stories. Just a great start to the day. Of course, some were better than others, but I think that the listening process is an important learning opportunity; it's possible that, while writing, students didn't know quite how to express something, but when listening to the work of their peers, they were able to make connections and better understand ways to incorporate figurative language effectively. They were so enthusiastic when someone shared a particularly good piece, which tells me that they did indeed make these connections.
