Part 2 of a 3-Part Series on Supporting Student Writing

Giving students feedback on their writing is the most effective way to provide immediate, actionable, and individualized support. But the process shouldn’t be so time-consuming that it only happens once or twice a year. Led by Annette Boyce, Senior National Facilitator at the National Center on Education and the Economy, this three-part series discusses efficient strategies for delivering focused writing feedback that any history teacher can use. You do not need to have attended session one to participate in session two, as a brief recap of the first session will be provided!

In this second session, we'll review four sample drafts of ninth- and tenth-grade student writing and use the "post-it method" to formatively assess and give each student feedback. We'll use this discussion to identify instructional next steps.


About Annette Boyce: As a life-long educator, Annette has been a teacher, curriculum developer, and professional learning facilitator. She has worked with districts across the country on developing systems to better support teacher and student learning.
