03 – Effective Feedback on Writing – Ahmar Mahboob

Posted on Updated on

MOT 2 1400

Hands up if you’ve been properly trained on giving feedback on students’ writing… Yep, not many of us.

Ahmar Mahboob gives a valuable insight into the most effective approach. Below are some links where you can get a more in depth look at his approaches. Is peer assessment any good? How and when should we focus on grammar?

Also, we have a saucy classroom story from @michaelegriffin (find him at eltrantsreviewsreflections.wordpress.com) about an unexpectedly forward question from a student. You can get involved too by sending your story to me (details at www.mastersofTESOL.com)

    Any way to download these older episodes? I just subscribed on iTunes and it’s only from episode 4 and on. I’d love to listen to all of it in my car.

      Hi – this is a great question, because, until you asked, I thought that Apple controlled that number. As it turns out, they do not – I do! It was only Googling the answer to your question that alerted me to this. You’ll be happy to know I’ve now changed the relevant setting and, when you restart the app/iTunes, you should be able to see the first three shows in the next day or so (not sure how long it takes to update). Thanks again.
