6-Traits Resources: Turning Criticisms to 'I" Comments

6-Traits Resources: Turning Criticisms to 'I" Comments | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

I am using Spandel's Creating Writers 6 Traits, Process, Workshop, and Literature 6th Edition in my upcoming online class: Teaching and Assessing Writing with the 6th Traits.  This is a graduate course offered by the University of Wisconsin-Stout.

Part of our time is spent assessing sample papers and writing feedback. I'll use this chart to emphasize the need to convert criticism to "I" comments.

Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:

This is a great way to make students more critically constructive.

Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:

Disclaimer!! This goes in the ' do as I say, not as I do' column. I am a bit of a beginner with numbers etc. but can see the use for it. I'm putting this scoop in to remind me to learn more about using spreadsheets. That said, this guide is helpful in that it covers the three most commonly used spreadsheet formats and goes through some useful, time-saving functions.
