PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Earlier in the school year, I had students write round robin paragraphs (One person wrote a sentence, then switched and continued writing where another person's paragraph left off), and they LOVED it! I also saw great gains in their paragraph writing skills from seeing both good and bad writing from peers. It went so well that I decided to see if I could expand the activity into writing an entire essay. I planned carefully, but I was quite convinced that the endeavor was going to be a disaster. It ended up going so well that I plan to do round robin essays every year from here on out!

This product takes the idea of round robin paragraphs and expands it to a full essay. Students brainstorm then switch with someone. They then write an intro based on the previous person's brainstorm. Students switch again and edit/revise the previous paragraph, then write the next paragraph where the last one left off. This continues until each student is given an essay draft to completely edit/revise and publish for a grade.
