This Week’s Commenting Time Frame
Please enjoy a week off!
If you would like to go ahead and leave comments, please feel free to do so.
A Commenting Tip:
Feedback vs. Specific Feedback
When giving feedback, you can go ahead and tell them exactly how to fix something. View the two examples below and notice how the second example is more effective in helping students make revisions.
Feedback (general and broad) Example: Please look at your greeting and make sure you used capitals and a comma correctly.
Feedback (specific) Example: Please look at your greeting. Remember, in a greeting you will always capitalize each word. Instead of “dear” you should write, “Dear.” You will also want to put a comma after the last word in your greeting.
