How teachers can give evidence-based feedback on reading accurately and on reasoning based upon evidence - Examples of Teaching Content and of Measuring Students’ Work

Using a source with examples of students’ work makes it possible to give evidence-based feedback on reading:

1.       If you want to have a dialog between students and perhaps with the teacher about complex context, having all use the same source helps learning.
For an example: http://www.wested.org/cs/ra/print/docs/ra/success_dixon.htm - This is only one aspect of the Reading Apprenticeship program.

For more about the Reading Apprenticeship, see these URLs:

·         http://www.wested.org/cs/ra/print/docs/ra/home.htm - with links including Publications and Research & Results

·         http://archive.cta.org/CaliforniaEducator/v9i7/Feature_4.htm - an interview, including the teacher in the video example

 

2.       If you want to grade written assignments, you can measure what the student read and give feedback accordingly.

 

 

FYI: Having students use only approved sources does not restrict instructors:

·         To one source

·         To the same sources as other instructors

·         Or to any other limitation on content

 

It just makes it possible to give evidence-based feedback about how well the students used evidence—how well they read.
