Give Feedback on Writing as a Class

  1. Strategy Overview
    Strategy Source
    Doug Lemov

    What is this strategy about?
    Create an incentive for pupils to write with quality at all times, not just when work is being handed in or being put on display. Publicly, show pupil’s work within the lesson and revise it together as a class.

    What is whole-class feedback?
    Whole-class feedback requires teachers to fill in one sheet commenting on the whole class' work rather than giving individual feedback to each student.

    Why is whole-class feedback useful?
    Whole-class feedback allows teachers to identify and discuss common errors in students' work. It offers a workload reducing way to feedback and target learning in the classroom. It is an efficient way for teachers to use their time in the classroom without having to spot, and comment on, the same mistakes time and time again.
