Yesterday, I wrote about Ray Salazar’s great post about his practice of having students write drafts of recommendation letters for themselves (see A Must-Read For Any H.S. Teacher Who Is Asked To Write A Letter Of Recommendation (In Other Words, Most Of Them) and his post, How to write letters of recommendation for high-school students).
With Ray’s permission, I have developed a form that I will be posting on our class blogs and asking students (primarily from my IB classes) to complete and send to me. As I wrote in yesterday’s post, however, I’m not using it for all students (English Language Learners and students who I know very well and admire a great deal – which may be one in the same).
I’ve created the form so it can used and modified by anybody, and would love to hear suggestions on how to make it better.
