Reflection: Lesson Planning Persuasive Essay Samples - Section 2: Persuasive Essay 1


After I collected the essays, I spent time reading and commenting. I didn't offer much critique as I hadn't offered any instruction yet -- this essay was only meant to be a check in point. I did praise what I liked in each essay to encourage effort in future writing, and I did make a list of areas in which students would need further study. I also made sure to label needs by name so that come conference time, I can reflect with parents on where there students were at the very beginning of the year and where they are at the time of conferences.
