Reading - Self Regulated Learning in Writing 
Empowering Students to Become Self-Regulating Writers: The Journey of One Class 
Verena Watson

Self regulated learners are able to identify their strengths and weakness.  How am I currently doing this?  Having reflection at the end of writing.  I need to make this a formal process where the kids will record their reflection.  

Explicit modelling and teaching in saturation is the key.  I know this works and does lead to student ownership.  Taking time to go through all the explicit features and then going back to looking  at creating a success criteria break down together.  I need to set up conferencing groups.
