Kid to Kid Feedback!
The method of using Praise, Question, Polish (PQP) is a way to help all writers provide feedback during the writing process.
It would be ideal to have writing partners consistently through a writing unit. These partners would take turns listening to the other read their piece while providing feedback. The partners should be on the same writing/reading level.
The posters included should be used to model effective feedback and can be done orally until your students get the hang of it.
As your expectations increase for partner/peer conferences you can scaffold their practice by using the forms included. One of the forms can be cut so that your kids start with just the verbal feedback as a guide This form matches the posters exactly. Then, if you want, you can have them write their feedback so that they can give it to the writer that they are listening to. The second form(s) have more detailed feedback and are not the same as the posters and I would recommend using those once kids get in the habit of giving basic feedback. The second set also has gender specific clip art; all boys and all girls.
This is a very effective way to get students to understand and to become active in the revision process while learning to accept feedback to improve their writing. GREAT for all ages!
