Leveraging Feedback to Improve Student Writing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.


We all want our elementary students to improve as writers. How do we assist them? Daily writing practice, yes. Mini-lessons, yes. Mentor texts, yes. Feedback, YES! But how? How do we provide authentic, meaningful feedback to our student writers? Join Erin and Karen to discuss various forms of effective feedback including timely, targeted comments, feedback frames, and single point rubrics. Regardless of your learning environment this year – in-person, online, or hybrid - this session is for you!
