Writing: Workshops, Genres, Revisions & More


 

  

The standard area of "Writing" is one of three standards areas in our local benchmarks and corresponds with our state and national standards. This standard is also reflected in our course competencies.

We'll develop our critical thinking skills in this area with the following activities:

 


Writing

Essay tests provide you with the opportunity to use your reader's responses to create a response to literature which reflects your critical thinking skills. Essay test responses can't be revised.

Writing prompts, brainstorming sessions, conferences and more will help us create, develop and explore the ideas that will become a reflection paper or a thesis paper or a multi-genre paper.  Many of these activities will happen in the course of a writing workshop. Your work in the context of a writing workshop will be assessed with the following "Self-Directed Learner" school-wide rubric.
