Conferring Cycle 2: Peer Conferring
Day 2: The recipe for a powerful writing partnership
Challenge: Study your students when they work in partnerships. Whose partnership is full of intensity? Spend some time talking with the partnership to investigate what makes their partnership successful.
How can you replicate what’s working well with the partnership you studied to benefit other writing partnerships?
Can you record or videotape the partnership at work so you can study their conversation with the rest of your students?
