Writing Models
+
Narrated writing samples / models
Two reasons for models
1. Expectations communicated without
examples are rarely assimilated
2. Many students fail to learn from
written feedback on papers
One problem with models
Students don’t always see in the models
what we want them to
Narrated models
Let your students hear you think aloud
as you read through & mark up a paper.

Self / Peer / Teacher Assessment
w/ Google Forms
●
Forms as scaffold for self- & peerassessment
●
Peer assessment - allows for easy
management (teacher, editor, edited all
have easy access w/ form mailing)
●
Anecdotally, results in more sustained
peer editing
●
More adjustments to instruction in
response to data:
○
Easy to get a quick glimpse of overall class
trends, possibly respond w/ a mini lesson
○
Helps identify overall trends & places to
modify instruction longer term
