Reflection: Complex Tasks Writing Our Own Stories - Section 4: Closure


I have a video here in the resource section of some of my student work.  By watching the video I hope you see some of the strategies that I teach my students so they can be independent when creating their sloppy copies.  You'll also see that since I stepped back and allowed my students to be more responsible for their learning that not all students are mastering the skill of turning their fragments into complete sentences as they create their writing on their flow maps.  I am going to continue to work with students on this skill to move them toward mastery.
