How Do I Give Feedback that Improves Student Writing?

Trying to teach students to improve their writing can be like trying to teach cats to fetch: Demonstrate all you want, encourage all you want, implore all you want; you’re apt to be met with nothing but blinks. We share seven novel feedback techniques that will motivate your students and drive real improvement in their writing.

Use Feedback to Improve Student Writing

Trying to teach students to improve their writing can be like trying to teach cats to fetch:

  • Demonstrate all you want
  • Encourage all you want
  • Implore all you want;
  • You’re apt to be met with nothing but blinks.
  • You’ll never change cats … but you can change students.

Maryellen Weimer, Ph.D., consultant, editor of The Teaching Professor and professor emerita at Penn State-Berks, shares with you her seven novel feedback techniques that will motivate your students and drive real improvement in their writing.

Professional Development Outcomes:

  • Learn how you gain student “buy-in” to the feedback process
  • How you can separate feedback from grading for better results
  • How to use benchmarking and “gateway” techniques to streamline the feedback process
  • How you can make feedback more “actionable” for students

In just a few short minutes, you’ll gain valuable insights into strengthening and improving your pedagogy.
