I wanted my students to reflect on why they write. Are they practicing being a storyteller? (This is a biggie in my classroom!) Or are they sharing their experience? During our writing workshop, I always choose three students to share their work at the end of the period. After they have shared, they use a vis-a-vis marker to color in their reason for writing the piece. There is always a clear feeling of anticipation from all the students as they wait to see the students reflection.
