Great model!

I love that you acknowledged the help you got from others in your model. If I could get my students to do that regularly, I'd be very pleased.

What a terrific essay! I hope that the assignment turns out well--it's so interesting.

wow! this is awesome! i'll email you about this after i've had a chance to read it again and absorb it better than i'm doing at this late hour. nice work!

Love this assignment, and love that you shared it with us. It's given me food for thought as well.

Thank you for sharing! I really enjoyed this and thought it would be a hugely useful model for students. I hope they appreciate your work! Not sure whether you mentioned this initially, but also, the essay poses the opportunity to talk about when the first person is appropriate to use.

Who is this What Now?

  • I'm an English teacher at a pretty darned good high school (the justly famous Fabulous Girls' School, or FGS). I am partner to D. We live in an adorable, messy little house in Adventure City, where we are hoping to have more frequent adventures than we have thus far. Two cats -- the Muse and the Contemplative -- live with us and keep life at home plenty adventurous.
