Some Feedback from Justin:

1) In all of these initial models, keep thinking about how you can go deeper. Ultimately, you want as much of your teaching as possible to connect back to your core goals. Henry's models do a nice job of pushing down into layers of assessments and activities. Melissa also provides some excellent specificity around her models of writing.

2) As you revisit these, think about your goals for time and output. What things will you do once or twice a year? What things will you try to do weekly (hint: you can't choose very many of these)? What are specific expectations for student output? How much will they read a week in September? In May? How much will they write a week? Ella does a really nice job of setting specific time and output goals in her logic models.

3) Consider how the same activities/assessments can be use for meeting multiple goals. How can a writing process help with organization, editing, citation, research skills, critical thinking, etc. The more tasks you do that address multiple goals, the more likely you are to meet those goals. The way I asked you to structure this exercise made this difficult, but that's the next step.
