Our presenters also shared the idea of having an "Expert Board". Students could use this area to write down their areas of expertise. When a student is struggling with a particular writing skill, they can refer to the expert board to find a helpful peer.
While I would love to have two separate displays in my room, space is definitely an issue. I decided to come up with a way to combine the two displays. Here is what I came up with.
My plan is for students to write their goals on (super sticky) Post-it Notes. They will post their goals underneath the "We are working on..." side next to the appropriate category. For example, a student might write, "I will write leads that grab my readers' attention." They would place that goal to the left of the Structure poster.
After we complete our first writing project, I am going to have students reflect on their goals and change them if needed. I am also going to have students identify their areas of expertise. Students will post these in a similar manner. For example, a student might write, "I can use similes to make my writing more interesting." They would place that Post-it Note to the right of the Development poster.
If you are interested in downloading these posters, they are free in my TPT store, and you can get them here.
