In Mrs. Dascenzo's AIG 4th and 5th Grade Reading classes, students are learning the value of peer feedback. Providing feedback for your peers builds higher level thinking, critical reflection and insight, and the ability to make evaluative suggestions. Providing feedback to others also provides an opportunity to see things more objectively while making an assessment of the work. You may also notice strengths and weaknesses that apply to your own work, which you may not have thought about before.
Student self-evaluation occurs when students assess their own performance. This helps make students more aware of and more responsible for their own learning. It also contributes to the development of critical thinking skills, enabling learners to more objectivley evaluate their own work.
