Year-End Student Reflection
An integral part of being a writer is taking time for reflective practice. The end of the school year is one time to ask students to reflect on their lives as writers. Take some time to consider which aspects of their writing lives you would like students to consider. Here is a PDF of a year-end student reflection I created several years ago (Year End Student Reflection) when I wanted students to engage in reflective practice, yet we didn’t have a lot of time to devote to it. They could use three different pieces of writing or the same piece of writing for each question. I think it is always a good day in Writing Workshop when students are engaged in reflecting on their growth as writers.
