Conferring Cycle 2: Peer Conferring
Day 4: Purposes for peer conferences
Challenge: Propose to students that writers meet to talk for different purposes. Invite them to have a peer conference when they would like feedback from another writer. Then track the reasons for their peer conferences on a chart.
What is the main reason the students in your classroom talk as writers?
How will you open the doors to different kinds of peer conferences?
