Reflection: Modeling Writing Observation Day - Section 3: Whole Class Annotation: Writing Pros and Revision Ideas, Discuss


Of course, I think it is very important to model work for students. But what could be a better model than showing the work of their peer's? Kids love to show off their work, as well as see real, live examples from kids that they know.

I have been in the habit of saving student work from year to year, but what I like even more is finding fresh samples each year from current kids. : ) It mixes things up for me and keeps it more relevant for my students.
