English Department Writing (Ann Larson)
After students get out of Lower School, parents usually do not see their English papers. The department writing procedure involves drafting or brainstorming or setting up the paper with the teacher. This pre-writing will vary with the teacher and the level of student. Some teachers mark a first draft for re-writing. Others work with the student through the draft and mark only the final paper. Sometimes there is peer editing. In every case the paper with marks and notes is returned to the student for a final copy. All teachers offer ample opportunity to ask questions about the marks so that students can learn from their mistakes. The marked drafts of these papers are kept until the beginning of the next school year. Teachers collect final papers in a Writing Portfolio that passes from 6th grade to 12th. As an example, the Class of 2008 has 12 papers, a term paper, and a poem from the sophomore year alone. Seniors are given the portfolio when they graduate.
