The "Article of the Week" actually already has three pieces of feedback embedded in the one assignment. I change the date on that one and move it up to the top when we have a new one to add.
I've got 7th graders, and first quarter for them is all rainbows and unicorns when they're not getting points or marks averaged. In fact, I saw this on a locker the other day and thought, "Yup. That's where we are right now."
Here's the tidbit I need to share that I heard from a student when we they went into the feedback they had for their article of the week...
"It worked! The feedback you gave worked, and I did better this time!"
THIS is why I put myself through the extra work of adding "next steps" to each student's personalized feedback.
That's really all I wanted to share today. Thanks to Jimmy Casas's latest post about blogging. "Write like you talk. Start writing. Write for you." Tag - you're it! Time for YOU to share another story!
