Seminar, Wed, 5/22

Morning

Concerns so Far

  • Grades/Standards
  • Pacing/Scaffolding of Assignments
  • Workload: Students and Teachers, “obsessive editing”
  • “Balancing” Close Reading/Content/Composition
  • Structure and Responsiveness

Working With Student Writing (From Yesterday)

Workshop: Writing Projects

In addition to the three standard workshop questions (what is the writer’s project?, what works best? what should the writer work on next?), please consider the following:

  • How would you describe the stance the author/teacher takes towards readers/students?
  • What terms of value appear in the text? What is said or suggested about how this writing will be evaluated?
