Information Genre: Buddy Assessment in progress!

The students are busy assessing each others' work using Lucy Caulkin's writing checklist. This allowed the students to give each other specific feedback. They looked for evidence to support their views. As you will notice in the video, they respectfully gave feedback to each other!
They enjoyed the lesson very much. As they worked, they used post-its to set goals for themselves.

Here is a reflection from the students about the whole process of buddy assessment!

Here are a few samples of their second piece of information text.

A really good piece of organised information text. The the prior learning taken place in the class has been put to great use here.

Punctuation was being assessed at this stage.

Kako is clear about her goals.

  1. Thanks so much for sharing your reflections on the voice thread app. What a cool app! 4B has never used this app before, perhaps you guys can teach us how?.... Also, great to see you all excited about helping each other grow as writers!
