Reflection: Continuous Assessment Introducing Of Mice and Men - Section 2: Memoir Collection


If the shared memoirs are any indication, then my expectations for improved narrative writing is looking fulfilled! In each class today, the work that was shared out loud was terrific, showing signs of careful attention to detail and strong development of voice and tone.  Memories covered were varied, from learning the identity of a real father, to traveling in Tuscany, to a day at the beach.  In each instance, both my students and I were able to provide specific feedback to the writers on just what was working in their pieces.

Overall, this has been a good day for eighth-grade writing!
