Based on what you read last night, how prepared do you think you are as a writer to tackle your senior thesis? What areas are you confident in? Where will you need to grow as a writer this semester to find success in the spring with your thesis?
Senior Thesis Examples
Get into a group of 3-4 students. Have the thesis you read yesterday pulled up in front of you. Discuss the following:
Debrief discussions, Lori answers questions when possible.
Look at the Three Levels of Writing and my Writing Rubric as a resource (honors folks, see the Honors Rubric).
Develop three specific writing goals for yourself as a writer based on these documents and my feedback. We're going to be using these goals for the rest of the semester to gauge your growth as a writer, and will use your end of semester writing reflection as a springboard for your senior project paper. As you feel like you achieve your goals, we'll develop new ones! Please try to keep the grammar/punctuation goals to only one of your goals. It’s fine to have one goal of this type, but the others should be broader in scope. This reflection will be worth 30 points, and will go into the "Am I developing as a learner?" category.
Write 3 Goal Paragraphs: For each of those three goals, write a paragraph. That paragraph should include:
College Essay Display Boards
Create your college essay display boards, and stack them neatly on the desk in the front of the room.
