Moments of Awesomeness

Shared by Lynn Reid

After grading a batch of papers early in the semester, I create a handout that includes one awesome thing from each person’s paper. “Moments of Awesomeness” acknowledges writing successes publicly and also provides models of effective student writing.

Reader’s Notebook

This semester, I’m trying to make the joy reading component of class more focused on the joy. I’ve dialed the work back and dialed the intensity down and tried to strike a balance between my need/desire to hold students accountable and the reality that external motivators and consequences aren’t conducive to reading for pleasure.
