The Kentucky Writing Program: Creating a Culture of Feedback and Analysis
This resource is designed to guide teachers and administrators in developing a system of ongoing feedback and analysis of students’ writing and communication skills.
The topic is approached at three levels: classroom level descriptive feedback, team level analysis of student work and school level analysis of student work. At the classroom level, this resource describes how to use descriptive feedback to progress learning and help students take ownership of their learning. The team level analysis shares advice for team collaboration to analyze student work in order to inform instruction and address student needs. Finally, a schoolwide analysis of students’ portfolio collections is designed to inform the school’s writing and communication program leading to continued improvement.
