I am offering Rewrite options for both the Math and Language activities.
In class, there will be the option for doing this. I am breaking from tradition and allowing students to improve their understanding of sentence writing by making corrections to the Sentence test.
Here is the three examples of the types of sentences I reviewed. As I mentioned in an earlier post, we will be reviewing these type of sentences in the new year as we begin writing paragraphs. There will be other opportunities to improve our understanding and mastery of these sentence types.
Here are two pages of notes that will help some of the students complete the Rewrites for Math. I was just talking with another teacher and thinking that doing at least one Rewrite should be mandatory for all students who failed the test or scored below 50%. When the opportunity to improve your mark is offered -- and coaching from the teacher -- I really believe students should be taking advantage of this and developing a sense of resiliency (bounce back) and responsibility.
