Feedback And Revision Strategies



Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read the article, From Error Correction to Meaning Making: Reconstructing Student Perceptions of Revision (Links to an external site.). Then, review the Writing Center’s Applying Feedback  (Links to an external site.)resource and take some time to review the feedback you have received throughout this course. In this class some of the ways that you have received feedback on your writing include peer replies to your posts on the discussion forums, instructor responses and rubric evaluation of your discussion posts, Waypoint rubric feedback on written assignments, and any responses to interactions with the Writing Center (including Grammarly, 24/7 Writing Tutoring, and Paper Review).



Learning how to incorporate feedback is an important part of the writing process. In this assignment, you will reflect on the feedback you have received throughout the course, assess your strengths and challenges, and develop a strategy for revision and continued improvement.

Feedback can come from several sources. But to continue improving as writers, we need to be open to the feedback we receive—and we also need to understand and act on what we are being told!



In 250 to 300 words, address the following points:

  • Consider at least two specific comments you have received as feedback.
    • What are the underlying concerns of the suggested edits?
  • Explain how you interpret feedback to prioritize your work on future writing projects.
    • What are the biggest issues you hope to address to have the greatest impact on your future writing?
    • What are some smaller issues that can wait until the final stages of writing projects to be changed, and why?
    • Where are your areas of strength in addition to your areas of growth as a writer?
  • Describe your revision strategy to take action on your prioritized issues.
  • What will you do to make both large and small changes in your writing overall?

Please note, you are not required to share the individual feedback you have received in this course, only your reactions to it, as well as your strategies for addressing it.
