Claire Uses Formative To Scaffold The Writing Process!


Formative Certified Educator, Claire Doyle, shares one of our favorite ways to use Formative in the classroom. Claire uses the Short Answer feature to create a series of questions and to scaffold the writing process for her students. As you can see below, Claire begins to scaffold by asking students to focus specifically on the introduction paragraph, breaking down nearly every sentence with a question on Formative. As students work through the assignment, Claire is able to provide immediate feedback at each point of the process, intervening in real time.  Once the students have edited their work and received feedback, they can then simply copy and paste each part into their final draft of their paper. What a great way to conference with students and give them a chance to edit in real time!
