Writing Sequence
Complete the following table with your plan for your writing sequence.

NOTE: Any changes you make to your outline based on your reflections should be done in a different color font than the original so your
instructor can see the changes. Please do not delete your original work. We want to see evidence of how the writing sequence evolves over
time so don’t worry about how different things are! The point of this assignment is that you are reflecting on your teaching and your students’ work
and making changes to your instruction along the way, so we expect to see multiple changes throughout.
