Assess a Peer Conference

In this interactive, you will watch a video of two authentic peer conferences. As you watch, consider these questions:

  • What are the benefits of the conferences to the writer and to the responders?
  • Where in the conferences do you see evidence of the teacher's explicit instruction?
  • What do you observe in the writer's demeanor as she receives feedback on her piece?
  • How helpful do you think the conferences are to the writer?

After recording your responses, you can compare your evaluation of the conferences to another teacher's.
