  • When the learners have completed their first draft, reinforce that it’s their ideas that are the most important by focussing on the content of their writing first. Here’s one way you could do that.
  • Organise your learners into groups of 4-5 and get each person to choose a role – as a reader, monitor, timer or listener.
  • Each learner takes turns at reading their piece aloud. The monitor makes sure everyone is on track. The timer moves the reading along. Everyone listens.
  • After each reading is completed, each learner takes turns to make a positive comment about one aspect of the piece, one thing that they would like to know more about, and one thing they think might make the piece better.
  • Each comment must be specific. The monitor decides if the responses are suitably specific.
