Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Freedom Writing: Themes and Perspective - Section 2: Listening for Themes


In order to get the most out of their writing I have found the creation of a graphic organizer helpful. I hand out two pieces of paper, one for notes and the other for their journal entry.

The note paper will need to be folded. I like to give more room for evidence so I do not fold it right down the middle. Instead, I fold the one side to the red line. This gives students more room to add to the evidence side.
