WRITE: Quickwrite #4: we’ll watch the video below and then react with a 3 minute in-class notebook write.
STUDY: Return to thinking from Tuesday about “good” writing. We’ll refresh our thoughts on the student papers we read & see what we can learn from quantifying our evaluations: norming out 4s & 1s, what makes a 4 a 4?, why are some evals all over the place? Visit the goodwrite Padlet board here.
