Mentors Cycle 1: Students as Mentors
Day 7: Saving student work
Challenge: Obtain permission from all of your students’ parents to make copies of their work for use with future classes of students. Once signed forms are returned, select students whose work you could imagine using to teach other writers. Be careful not to choose only the top writers in your class. We can learn from every student’s writing regardless of how skilled they may seem at the beginning of the year.
In the work you’ve collected, are certain parts of the writing process easier for you to document than others?
What makes that so?
Which students’ work did you decide to keep track of?
Why did you decide on these students?
