As AIs and instructors, we dedicate many hours each semester to commenting on and evaluating student writing, but is this feedback helping students to improve their writing and critical thinking skills the way that we want it to? In this workshop, we will draw on writing pedagogy scholarship in an effort to confront the challenges associated with providing effective feedback to a variety of student learners as well as to identify strategies for developing a readerly approach to responding to our students’ writing. Further, we will discuss the kinds of feedback that might be most helpful to students at different stages (planning, drafting, revising) of the writing process. Finally, we will discuss a few strategies for encouraging your students to interact productively with your written feedback.
