Give and Receive Feedback_LR


How do authors collaborate to improve their writing?
Give and receive feedback that is focused and constructive, and that will help the author improve their draft.


Time To Complete 

1 Day

Common Core Standards 

  • CCRA.SL.1
  • CCRA.SL.3
  • CCRA.W.5
Possible Activities 
  1. Have students read each other’s drafts using a peer-revision checklist (see resources below) and provide feedback to the author. A time-efficient way to do this is to upload drafts to a class website and have students leave comments to the author as an out-of-class assignment

  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 resource below) to support students in giving constructive and considerate feedback.
