One-on-One Conferences Work

After comparing the changes from my students First Draft and Final draft of the Definition Paper to the First Draft and Final Draft of the Textual Analysis Paper, I must conclude that one-on-one conferences with students significantly improve their writing.

Granted, my one-shot anecdotal evidence is hardly scientific, but I plan to conference with my students on the Visual Analysis Paper and the Persuasive Paper (rather than just the one) to double check my theory.
