Assessment Cycle 1: Formative Assessment
Day 8: Studying writing partnerships
Challenge: Take some time to observe partnerships throughout this week. Take anecdotal notes about what you witness. At the end of the week, review your notes and determine your next teaching steps for each partnership. Plan to focus teaching on what you noticed when you meet with each writing partnership the following week.
How did your close observation of a given partnership help you gain a better understanding of how that partnership functions?
Was anecdotal note taking an effective way to capture what you noticed?
If not, could you use technology to capture a partnership’s meeting?
