By E. Luchs
My dilemma stems from an awareness that not all of my students are fully utilizing the revision step of the writing process. Furthermore, finding a fair and impartial way to assess the growth in writing for all students, regardless of their current capabilities is problematic. I want to ensure that all students are being challenged and are showing growth from their original draft to their publication.

The Kagan strategies and research show that a fair balance of all academic achievers offers the greatest growth. When working with “elbow partners,” the highest students are best paired with the mid-low, and the mid-high with the low. This lowers behavioral management issues, as well as offers the optimal student improvement for the lower students.
