Comments on Students’ Writing

by: Inez Fugate Liftig

As science teachers, we must provide feedback on both the science content and quality of writing demonstrated in their assignments. Unfortunately, our schedules do not always allow us to hold individual writing conferences or ask for extensive rewrites or revisions of papers. Consequently, the comments we include on students’ papers are often the only personal feedback we can provide. Therefore, it is vital that our comments are focused and coherent, providing valuable suggestions to help improve students’ writing.
