I’ll try to post a more thorough update this weekend when I have time, but for now, I needed to throw this out there.
I’ve been starting writing workshop conferences with students. It’s really my first time making a very concerted effort to work with students during the writing process, rather than simply grading essays (all spurred, I might add, by Kittles’ Write Beside Them).
I feel the dire need to ask for help as I try this, so I leave you with a simple question and ask for any feedback you might have, and thanks ahead of time for your input.
When you conference with students in class, what are your other students doing? How do you keep them engaged in meaningful learning?
