Mid-Year Self-Evaluation: Want a Copy?

It’s that time again… This-coming week is Mid-Year Self-Evaluation Time in my class’s Writing Workshop.

I’ve revamped the Mid-Year Self-Evaluation to reflect the questions from not only Buckner’s Book (as I have done in the past), but from Elliott’s Book, along with some of my own questions. It’s a lot less intensive on photocopying entries from the writer’s notebook than past mid-year self evals have been (This is due to the fact that I’ve found kids spend too much time worrying about what to copy and not enough time reflecting.).

  5. Stacey,

    I’d love a copy. I found the same last year; my students focused way too much on the “what to copy” than on the reflecting.

    Thanks so much for all you do. Anytime I’m feeling workshop is falling apart at the seams, I read your blog and am reminded of the powerful work my students are doing, whether or not I can see it at that exact moment. I appreciate your dedication!


  6. Stacy-
    You are a wonderful mentor. You keep pushing me to set higher standards for myself and my kids. I would love a copy of your mid-year evaluation. Thank you for offering.


  7. I’d love to compare it to my mid-year evaluation, which I am planning to hand out this week, too. Thanks!
