Week 31 – Student Response: Brainstorming


Here are two parts of the brainstorming work that Student A did in order to write the Compare and Contrast paper, the rubric for which is on the previous post.  There are a series of questions that I ask students to consider as a way to scaffold (help them with) it.  This student chose to compare and contrast the main characters in the novels To Kill a Mockingbird and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.

Whether you agree with her answers or not, the work she is putting into it is impressive.  She is clearly thinking about her answers and looking for evidence.
