Reflection: Joy Critical Responses to Writing - Section 3: Wrap Up and Next Steps


My students were really proud of the work they completed with this narrative assignment. They were eager to share how well their parallel structure or their Dickensian chapter titles worked with their stories. I haven't started to read their final drafts yet, but I am excited to see how many times Madame Defarge stabs her victims through the eye with a knitting needle since so many of my boys not only channeled Dickens, but Quentin Tarantino in their final drafts. I put my foot down with turning the book into a zombie apocalypse, but even without the undead, my students definitely came up with some strange ideas...and I'm pretty stoked about how excited they were to write these pieces.
