Abstract

Given that feedback from different sources is combined to ripple through the entire revision process, it is important to create a space where students can understand and interact with different modes of feedback in order to work through it. However, pedagogy for the use of multiple feedback sources from a practitioner’s perspective has been rare. To address this paucity of attention, this article suggests a feedback-rich framework to help students grow as independent writers who can navigate the various interactional spaces for their writing. This teaching article presents a narrative example of a feedback-rich environment for an ESL first-year composition class. Teacher observations of student work and reflection indicate that the emphasis on multiple forms of feedback and reflection helped the students become more analytical about their revision, more active in writing conferences, more willing to solicit feedback, and thus more engaged with revision.
