In this session, participants will discuss the components of feedback that provide success in the writing classroom. Participants will review the LISD writing rubric at their grade level and learn about providing feedback that is timely, specific to student approximations, and appropriate for the maximum development of student writing. Participants will also discuss what this feedback looks like at various points in the school year in order to develop student writers that value content, structure, and convention.

Learning Targets:
  • The particpants will learn about characteristics of effective feedback by discussing what they already know about feedback and reviewing research relevant to giving students effective feedback.
  • The participants will learn about characteristics of effective peer and teacher feedback, using different strategies, feedback models, and questions by writing and role playing as a peer or teacher in a conference in addition to other cooprative learning strategies.
  • The participants will learn about using a unit rubric (for students) and student performance indicators (LISD rubric or TEKS checklist) to develop the next approximation needed to advance writing.
  • The participants will learn how to include writers in all steps of the feedback process to increase student agency in writing through participant discussion and post-session google-classroom support in implementing and reflecting on writing feedback.
