Kim Pollishuke demonstrates a great way to make thinking visible using Google Docs comments with her student’s writing project.
I had been using the “Comments” feature in Google Docs for months to give my students descriptive feedback. It occurred to me that if they comment on their own work, their thinking would be not only visible but also act as on-going self-assessment.
. . .
Just a few days later, the results were remarkable. For the student, it is a reminder of what to specifically review later in the revising and editing stages. For me, it is visible evidence of their thought process in their learning journey.
