In learning how to give effective, useful feedback, students do substantive, fundamental learning about writing that will make them better writers.

Jessie L. Moore (@@jessielmoore), Elon University

Projecting the live feed of comments allowed me to get out of students’ way while still reminding them that their work is public in our class community.

Ann Shivers-McNair (@ashiversmcnair), University of Washington

If my students are only getting feedback from me, they’re not getting enough.

Chris Sloan (@csloan), Judge Memorial High School

Lynn Reid, Fairleigh Dickinson University

Eli triples, quadruples the amount of feedback that any writer in the class can get.
