Well, I can share some of my practices and forms. Add writing – even short sentences and questions to every lesson. For instance, I often have students write three questions after each reading… and circle around correcting the questions for grammar and clarity. I also bring postcards to class and have them write a postcard to themselves in ten years. Then, I have them write – for homework – a letter to their future selves. The next day we exchange letters and write five questions to the “authors”. Students then reply to the questions – in writing – and revise their letters again adding at least five new details for homework. Finally, students exchange letters again and give feedback on the CONTENT only. Students get a third chance to revise and upgrade vocabulary. Then they turn in their essays at the end of the week to me.
