Tools for Making Feedback on Student Writing More Effective | MMC GL 482 

Wed., Oct. 30 3:00pm-4:00pm | Thur. Oct. 31 10am-11:00am 

Feedback is fundamental to any learning process in any discipline. However, obtaining feedback can oftentimes be an experience fraught with anxiety. This can be particularly true with writing, as some students may have experienced harsh, unconstructive feedback in the past, and some many have internalized self-concepts like “I cannot write” or “I am just not a good writer.” Therefore, how teachers provide feedback on student writing is at least as important as the content of the feedback they provide. In this workshop, we will discuss and apply strategies for providing targeted, constructive feedback on student writing, but we will also discuss strategies for ensuing that students are well-equipped to process this feedback in helpful ways.
