Reflection: Staircase of Complexity Our President - Section 3: Extend Understanding


This writing is very guided and is time consuming.  This is among our first experiences with more than two sentences, so it is how I stress using an entire line and filling it with words before we go to a new line.  Student will often write two or three words on a line and then go to a new line,  so I have to monitor carefully to make sure they do not do that.  I also stress the return sweep and going ‘around and down’ to continue writing when we get to the end of our line.  

  Time consuming but worth it!
