Promising Moments: Putting It Together

0 0 186
This week I wanted to provide you with a full and concrete example of how I focus on promising moments in my comments. Parkin’s rough draft is in response to an assignment I posted about earlier. For clarity’s sake, I’ve focused on my work identifying what is really promising about the draft and what needs work. I’ve condensed my marginal comments so that you can see them in action as well as see how those comments relate to my end comments. Parkin’s revised draft shows how well she was able to revise her work based on my comments. The end comments reinforce her progress, while pointing to areas that still need work.
