Timely Feedback

As much as I would like to meet with students independently to give feedback, it is sometimes difficult to find the time on a daily basis. Commenting with Google Docs came to mind when I was giving feedback on a grade level document. I realized this tool enables me to interact with each student in a timely manner. My students are comfortable with Google Docs and find it is easy to use. With this particular assignment, a theme paragraph, I was a bit anxious because the students were finishing up their rough drafts, and  I wanted to wrap everything up before we began our next class novel. Once I finished commenting on all of the papers, the homework assignment was for students to reply to the comments and then make the revisions or edits. By replying, it enabled students to reflect upon their own writing and thinking. Although nothing tops meeting with face-to-face, the commenting feature allows me to contact each student in a timely manner.
