Reflection: Student Ownership Comparison of Two Schools - Section 2: Rough Draft


Before students begin writing, I remind them that this type of writing is considered analytical writing.  Therefore, they need to identify the title, author, names of characters to whom they are referring, and avoid “I” statements.  I tell them to sound like the expert on the topic – do not say “I think” or “In my opinion”.  Just make the statement as if they know everything there is to know about these two schools without a question.
