Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Revising the Literary Analysis Essay - Section 2: Revising the Essay


After all the work we put into these essays (and the time in between), the closing of this class felt, to be honest, weak. I think students felt the same as I did, and I didn't like it. In the future, I would rather close with some recognition of their work. Just a simple, "Share your favorite sentence," would do, or I could focus on the new standards. "Share your caption," or "What is your favorite heading," perhaps. Anything beyond, "I'll take your essays at the door," would help students feel accomplished and positive (and thus continue our positive class culture).
