Reflection: Accountability A Personal Declaration Essay, Polishing - Section 2: Revision and Polish


On our threaded revision day, I had several students arrive without drafts; they were thus unable to get peer feedback on their work.

Are these students excused from getting revision? Absolutely not.

If previously unprepared students have not yet had another person--friend, classmate, parent, etc.--give feedback on the essay, their first task today is to get feedback. I pair them up with other students needing revision as soon as we get to the lab.
