Clip to ScrapBook #4

Prior to presenting the final, find some "exemplar papers", top papers to show students what the expectation is for the final.

Perhaps you don't really know how much they have improved. I have students write a "pretest" essay at the beginning of the year. I score them and write "writing goals" for that student based on their pretest. At the end of the year they get the same prompt. After I score the final, we compare the two pieces. Students always improve. If you don't have a writing from the beginning of the year you don't realize how far they have come from the fall.
