Reflection: Qualitative Evaluations Comparison Essay Writing on Fahrenheit 451 and Another Text (Day 2 of 3) - Section 3: Writer's Workshop


This paper is huge!  I am doing everything I can to make sure that every student will succeed on this summative assignment, so differentiation in this lesson is hugely important.  I also plan to see students before and after school and in study hall in order to maximize my availability to conference with them on their work.  I can't help but get excited about summative papers like this, but I am looking very carefully to see if any students are not progressing in a timely way.
