Mr. Gauthier uses Google Docs to provide feedback to students in Writers Workship.

Mr. Gauthier is always looking for ways to integrate technology in the classroom without losing the authenticity of readers and writers workshop. While students are typing their essays in a google document after sharing it with me, I post comments in their writing that address something they have done well on and something to focus on. Students are able to make the corrections and ask questions back. When I inquired about the success of this approach with the students there was the consensus that they enjoy this because it is less intimidating for them to receive feedback in this manner and the students are able to ask questions without feeling like anyone else is hearing their questions.
