Response: Provide Feedback on Writing That 'Helps Students Tell Their Story' | Classroom Q&A With Larry Ferlazzo - Education Week

 (This is the first post in a four-part series)

The new question-of-the-week is:

What are the best ways to give students feedback on their writing?

Classroom Q&A With Larry Ferlazzo

Teaching writing—and learning how to write—are not easy tasks for teachers or students. Educators giving feedback to students on what they write can have a big instructional impact—if done well. If done poorly, it can be a waste of time or even harmful.

This series will exploare the do's and don'ts of giving students feedback on their writing.

We'll start off today with responses from Anabel Gonzalez, Sarah Woodard, Kim Jaxon, Ralph Fletcher, Mary Beth Nicklaus, and Leah Wilson. You can listen to a 10-minute conversation I had with Anabel, Sarah, and Kim on my BAM! Radio Show
You can also find a list of, and links to, previous shows here.

My contribution to this topic is an article I've previously written for the British Council headlined Four Ways To Give ELL Students Feedback on Their Writing. I use the same strategies with students who are proficient in English.

You might also want to explore previous columns appearing here on Writing Instruction.

Lastly, The Best Resources on Getting Students to "Buy-Into" Revision might be helpful.
