WOOD-letsgetwritingMrs. Carmona’s 6th grade classes are working to become conscience writers and editors. Are you an editor, or a writer? How often are you giving the chance to become both? In class, her students are given daily prompts. At first, students were struggling to form information for their topics. Now, they are working on organizing their thoughts and getting feedback from their fellow writers– yes, their peers! After the creative process, students must seek two critics that will give one positive and one critical feedback from various groups each day; linking writers to a resource of editors. The writers become reflective and responsible for their written words. The editor is responsible for validity of the critique as they must sign their name to it since it’s public. The underlying practice which fosters a reflection of oneself and actions are invaluable.
