"During this session, the student and I went over her writing assignment from the previous week and discussed our reading. We discussed how writing what you know is often times the easiest and best choice when writing but that it's also good to challenge and stretch your writing abilities at times. At certain points in her story, the student did an excellent job of emulating the author's prose. We also practiced formulating mini-arguments about the text, as if we were responding to essay prompts. The student demonstrated an understanding of the importance of acknowledging "the other side" when formulating an argument."
