January 14 Webinar – Giving and Getting Feedback

FeedbackIn our next Writing Process webinar, Giving and Getting Feedback, we will explore how teachers can give students feedback on their writing and how students can give each other feedback. Feedback is an essential part of the writing process and we’ll talk about how descriptive feedback helps students make revisions and redraft to improve their writing pieces. Our guests for this webinar will be Julie Canniff and Sara Needleman, two faculty members of the Teacher Education Department at USM. They will be a part of our conversation about establishing criteria and giving descriptive feedback based on that criteria.

Lisa Hogan, Tech Integrator at MSAD 75, will also be in the room to talk about her experiences with middle school students and the writing they did in science classes. We will look at some resources for getting feedback online and discuss the difference between evaluative feedback and descriptive feedback and how we can teach students to give each other feedback that really helps them in revising their writing. Finally, we will demonstrate how teachers and students can give each other feedback on their digital drafts, without having to print each one and mark it up. And of course, we hope you will let us know what techniques and strategies you are having success with in your classrooms.

Please join us Thursday, January 14 at 3:15 or 7:15 pm. You can find links for registration and information about how to access these sessions by clicking on the Webinar tab at the top of this page.
