Moving beyond corrective feedback: (Re)engaging with student writing in L2 through audio response

Jennifer Ahern-Dodson, Deborah Reisinger


This article examines teacher feedback on student compositions in an Advanced French Composition course at a Research 1 institution.

As teachers bring renewed energy to familiar responding practices, they shift from “grader” to “reader.” These findings have important implications for teacher training and the role of feedback in L2 courses.
