How to give feedback (Eng 8B)

When you have finished writing your letters I want you to help each other. Before you start, we need to take a look at some useful phrases and how to work with Two stars and a wish.

1. Finish writing your letter.
2. Find someone that is finished and change letters- share your letters with each other. Use your eduhoor.se address. Remember to share your document with me if you haven't done it already: sara.bruun@eduhoor.se
3. Read the phrases below together and make sure you both understand the meaning.
4. Read the letter from your friend.
5. Write your feedback in the google doc. I show you if you don't know how to do it.
6. Has the author followed the instructions? Does he/she start with Dear ...;
Does he, she finish with Best regards ... ;
7. Is the text coherent?
8. Grammar? Has the author used is,are, has, have correctly? Anything else you can help with?
9. Spelling? Has the author written I with a capital I? Anything else you can help with?
10. Pick two phrases from STARS and one phrase from WISH - use those phrases to conclude your feedback. What 2 things were good about the letter and what does the author need to improve?

(Tills Vklass fungerar hittar du kunskapskraven som bedöms här i bloggen: 

För att förtydliga och variera sin kommunikation kan eleven bearbeta och göra välgrundade förbättringar av egna framställningar. I muntlig och skriftlig interaktion i olika sammanhang kan eleven uttrycka sig tydligt och med flyt samt med viss anpassning till syfte, mottagare och situation. Dessutom kan eleven välja och använda sig av väl fungerande strategier som löser problem i och förbättrar interaktionen och för den framåt på ett konstruktivt sätt. ( LGR 11) )
