## Reflection: Student Ownership Write It Wednesday-Circles - Section 3: Landing

I love it when my students provide feedback to one another. They are usually more receptive to a classmate helping them "fix" their answers. As we looked at responses that needed improvement, authors understood that what they wrote may not have been what the reader actually read. The feedback gave explicit examples and helped the authors provide clarification that may have been missing. Suggestions were made that helped strengthen answers and the benefit was obvious when we finished.
