Hello Colleagues, One of the ways I have found to provide useful feedback to students on their writing is to have them write questions they have about the writing in the margins of the piece they are working on. This process allows me to focus my feedback on the specific issues the learners themselves are grappling with.
I’m uploading a sample paper from an English language learner here. Take a look at the student’s writing and my feedback and let me know what you think of this approach.
Has anyone else tried a similar approach? What works well for you in providing feedback on learners’ writing?
