Reflection: Adjustments to Practice The Words are Tired- oops- Exhausted! - Section 2: Application


In the future, I will change the activity of editing the words in the paragraph. There's no reason why a peer should do the editing the first time around.  Better that the author of the paragraph take a hand at improving it first.  There weren't ill feelings, and great suggestions were made, but I think it would be more valuable for the students to edit their own work initially. This will definitely be changed next time!
