Objective: I can review my most recent essay score, read a 9 poetry essay, and plan my next steps for my writing goal. Agenda:
Entry Task: Get your writing folder and sit with your writing group. Write your name on notecard provided.
Review your poetry score (1. Notecard: how do you feel about this score?) and chart your progress in your folder. Make sure you have answered questions through "How can I help you?" on the back of the chart.
Note: I have modified how I give feedback--look for scores along the way that SHOULD help you see where your at AND where you can improve.
2. Notecard: Is this helpful?
Read a 9 essay and identify how their comments are different than yours?
3. Notecard: What can you do that the 9 writer did? If you also received a 9, how is the 9 you read different than the 9 you wrote? THERE ARE MANY PATHS TO GET YOU THERE!
Look through ALL of your essays and consider whether you would rather rewrite an essay for your LAST essay tomorrow or try something new with the passage prompt.
4. Notecard: Which essay will you (re)write tomorrow?
April is poetry month! 5. Notecard: What is your favorite poem or who is your favorite poet? Why?
Exit Task: Make sure your essay folder is organized. Put it back in your writing pocket. Make sure your name is on your notecard with numbers 1-5 complete and turn in to me!
