Give and Receive Feedback_Info


How can the draft be improved?
Using feedback from a peer and/or teacher, have students strengthen their drafts by improving their presentation of evidence with a focus on being clear, catchy, and comprehensive.

Time To Complete 

1-2 Days

Common Core Standards 

  • CCRA.SL.1
  • CCRA.SL.3
  • CCRA.W.5

I Can Statements 

  • I can:
    • With some guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach, focusing on how well purpose and audience have been addressed. (6-8.WHST.5)
  • I will know my use of feedback and revision are of high quality when my draft:
    • Incorporates feedback from peers and adults
    • Is edited for content, form, and standards of written language
    • Meets the requirements for the assignment in terms of content, format, and length

Suggestions for Assessing Student Readiness to Move Forward:

  • Confer with students, first asking them to point out specific revisions they made and explain how they incorporated feedback into their work; later, review their drafts for format and correctness.
  • Ask students to use rubrics or checklists to self-assess their work and develop a plan for further revision or editing.


Possible Activities 
  1. Have students self-evaluate or peer-evaluate infographic drafts based on criteria in the resources below. They can do this by trading them in class, posting them on the web, and writing comments.

  2. Create a sheet that allows students to ask specific questions for feedback to multiple revision partners. 

  3. After reviewing drafts you may want to order a specific set of mini-lessons based on student need. These mini-lessons can then become part of the expectations for revising.

  4. Give modeling and or use fishbowl exercises (see resources below) to support students in giving constructive and considerate feedback.
