Conferring to Receive and Give Feedback

Anderson_Teacher_guide

Feedback is key to student learning. Since writing conferences are conversations between students and teachers, they provide opportunities for two types of feedback: student to teacher, and teacher to student.

The powerful thing about the feedback loop is that assessment and teaching happen in real time. In conferences, you listen to students' work, and then you teach in response to what you've learned. As the school year progresses, feedback is also informed by what you have learned across time about students and how they're growing and changing as writers. And, as soon as a conference is over, students can act on the feedback they've received from you immediately.
