Responding to Student Writing
Written from one teacher to another, Nancy Sommers' Responding to Student Writers offers a model for thinking about response as a dialogue between students and teachers - and for thinking about the benefits of responding to writers as well as to their writing.
In this resource, which is based on her research, she focuses on the roles that teacher feedback plays in writers' development and offers strategies for moving away from responding as correcting.
