Reflection: Student Ownership Threaded Revision for Literary Analysis Essays - Section 2: Threaded Revision


One of my favorite aspects of this lesson is that students are responsible for their own questions for revision, not me. To me, this creates buy-in and encourages students to think of themselves as constantly improving (why else would you ask questions).

Unfortunately, I had a few students not write questions today (as seen in the student example). The good news: their peers gave plenty of feedback anyway. The bad news: that feedback might have been overwhelming to the author.

I hope that in the future, all students will take the time to write their questions so they can get the feedback most important to them.
