The writers of 2B have been goal-setting to hone their skills this week, and every day they've been assessing their daily writing. This week we've been focusing on punctuation, capitalization, and syntax, and soon we will be adding ideas, sentence fluency, and organization to what we're looking at in our writing. We have a rubric to assess our writing, and the students started out assessing their own writing in three areas according to that rubric. At the end of the week we started assessing our peers' writing which the students really enjoyed! It's important that we are respectful and constructive when giving peers feedback, and the students have demonstrated that in these writing conversations. It's neat to see growth in the class' writing already!
