L g to improve students ability to write an analytical essay

  • Study of ‘The Giver’

  • Fantastic discussion from a rich text, this wasn’t translating into writing.

  • Running out of time at the end of the unit to teach writing

Why???


Questions

  • Why students forget this stuff year after year?

  • In teaching structure do you always compromise ideas?

Questions


Solution

  • To use focused formative assessment

  • To narrow the focus of my teaching, spending time teaching TEEL

  • To teach the skill throughout the unit – 3 paragraphs in total, to acknowledge that we need practice to learn a new skill

  • To make a rubric work properly

  • To enable students to see their own growth

Solution


It s all about the hamburger

  • Used the same rubric/hamburger, tracks growth

  • To make this a piece of paper students were attached to I used SY’s idea of creating their own hamburger

It’s all about the hamburger.


Results

  • All students moved up the rubric through the unit

  • Easy to teach essay writing at the end

  • The average grade for my class was higher than I have ever had for that class

  • It was easy to see who needed to be referred to PRTI

  • There was richer discussion of text

  • I think it’s going to stick!

  • If it does stick, I know where I can move from here

Results


Questions unanswered

  • Will I need to teach this again with ‘Alice’?

  • Do we need to teach students such a rigid structure so early?

  • Will this help year 9 teachers extend students?
