This lesson is a super valuable resource in building real, working writing groups who challenge each other to improve. One of the best ways to know your class is awesome is when they take over, when they forget about the teacher and start writing to impress their peers. Even if you as the adult in the room know many ways their writing could improve, if you can convince them to push each other the gains will outlast any marking period or semester you teach these students. This lesson and its continual reuse did more than any other element to build not a classroom, but a community of writers. That is a big difference and it is palpable by the end of the term.
