As English and writing teachers, it is our job to make sure our students gain the knowledge they need for success in college and beyond. One way to do this is to promote meta-cognition, or thinking about thinking.
These reflective writing bell ringers are designed to help students think about how they complete their writing process. By considering these things, they will be better equipped to carry their learning into other classes and, someday, into their future careers.
Included in this PowerPoint are bell ringers with the following themes:
p. 1 Brainstorming
p. 2 Reading Like a Writer
p. 3 Liking Our Own Writing
p. 4 The Writing Process
p. 5 Connecting Our Classes
p. 6 Choices We Make as Writers
These reflective writing PowerPoint slides are designed to be used over and over throughout the school year. As students repeat these activities, they will continue to become better at reflecting on their identities and processes as writers. I hope your students find these reflections as powerful as mine do!
