That's a great point! One of the hardest things for me to get a writing
class to do is to progress--that is, whatever level they were working at
in week 1 or 2, get them to another level (and/or a better level, and/or
a deeper level, but at least a different level) in weeks 3 and 4, etc.
And choreographing the group work has been really successful at helping
me accomplish that goal in one of my courses.
