Reflection: Parent Communication Narrative Writing Workshop: Peer Review and Revision - Section 3: Peer Revision Workshop


Many of the students who were unprepared for today's workshop were the students who did not pass my class last semester. One of my goals was to improve my parent communications so that no one is in so dire a situation at the end of second semester. Since their lack of preparation feels like the beginning of a bad habit, I am going to try to nip it in the bud. I will be busy making phone calls this afternoon to hopefully inspired productivity with the parents' support.

Not to paint a bleak picture, though. Many of my students had great drafts and were very excited to share with each other and with me. I just don't want to lose the others by making them think I condone their behavoir with lack of action.
