Reflection: Checks for Understanding Annotating Craft and Structure (Last Day) - Section 3: Craft and Structure Quickwrite


I've been enjoying reading students' quickwrites and using them as a formative assessment.  It can be a quick (quickwrite!) way to see if students are grasping concepts.  They can also be longer to allow students to grapple with big issues and concepts. 

I love how natural they have become to both my students and me.  They're using the T3C paragraph format that we use every day at my school to guide the organization of their writing, which means I can use it as a formative assessment for two things--the concepts that I'm teaching and how their writing skills are progressing.  One assignment to measure two things?  Yes, please.
