Reflection: Student Self-Assessment Reflecting on 1st Semester and Setting Goals for 2nd Semester - Section 4: Applying Knowledge: Presentation of Reflection and Goals


I continue to work with my students on how to give feedback.  They struggle--too harsh, not honest enough, over-the-top editing, or you are perfect because you are my friend.  I want them to have as many opportunities as possible to share different types of feedback with their peers.  I hope it will better help them assess their own performance as well as appreciate the work of their peers.  

Unfortunately, several students dominate the class when with verbal feedback.  I have to acknowledge them and ask them to give someone else a chance.  I worry that most students don't read written feedback or even understand how to use feedback to improve their presentations or writing.
