In this chapter, Troy Hicks and Andy Schoenborn build on their stance of encouragement. They argue that providing substantive feedback and opportunities for revision creates confident writers by:

  • Viewing one’s own writing through the eyes of a reader;
  • Responding to feedback students receive to acknowledge, consider, and explain rhetorical moves;
  • Celebrating what the writer does well, acknowledging positive moments, and encouraging revision with gentle nudges;
  • Utilizing digital tools to share valuable resources, revision techniques, and personalized lessons.

Here are the links presented in the chapter, in order:
