EXAMPLE: Self Check: Do I know the objective?
SYNOPSIS: This is a mini lesson using a quick little self-check. We have already completed the main lesson and now we are going to apply it to a piece of writing. This task allows students to perform a SELF-CHECK and see if they are really making sure their sentence beginnings have some variety. It is meant to be used on a prior piece of writing they have already completed, or have recently finished. This self-check can be applied to a wide variety of objectives, especially in L.A.
