Using Specific, Substantive, and Timely Feedback to Students to Encourage Them
In this scenario, a student is working on independent writing of a narrative piece. The teacher is providing support and feedback to the student while confering about the student's story.
"Ms. Jessica, I can't think of what else to write in my story to include details and make it more interesting?"
"Well Valeria, remember to use your five sense and think about what you heard, saw, smelled, felt or tasted during the moment that you are writing about.
" That's good. Try to describe exactly how you felt or what your drive to the pet store was like. Try to include details in your story such as the time of day, the weather, what you were wearing to make your story interesting and allow the reader to invasion your story."
"Oh, ok. I remember that I was really excited because I was going to get a new puppy and we were going to the pet store".
"Ok Ms. Jessica, I'll try."
"Good. I can't wait to read what you've added. I know it's going to be very interesting."
