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.).
If you’re interested in receiving a PDF of the revised Mid-Year Self-Evaluation I’m using next week, then leave a comment on this post, with your e-mail address (It will not be published since it’s only visible to me.) and I’ll send it to you.
I am a literacy consultant who has spent the past dozen years working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grades K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.
I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
