*Reflecting on the writing process has always been the best way to improve.
Are you using the Teacher College writing curriculum like so many others? We are too.
I’m currently teaching 7th grade, and after the students write their Narrative, Literary Analysis, and Argument, I have them write a reflection. Students still use the checklists. I’ve just taken it one step further.
The reflections are rewarding to read. This is where you get to see that you really have made a difference as students will often write about how much you helped them and how much they have learned.
