student writing/expectations

Posted By: Jondi Gumz on April 8, 2003
 
I'm a parent volunteer reading papers from high school seniors in a college prep class and I'm surprised so few students know how to compose a thesis. A lot of them simply reword the prompt without bringing in their insights until the third or fourth paragraph. And I think spelling is important. Words like separate and repetition should be spelled right.
All I can figure is no one ever brought this to their attention.
