Do you have your 2nd/3rd graders self or peer assess their writing? What have you done to teach the process of self-assessing and peer assessing? What assessment tools do your students use (rubrics, checklists, etc)?
I have noticed that many of my 2nd and 3rd graders disregard content-specific feedback if they feel like they have put forth a lot of effort (or often even when they haven't!), specifically in writing. I am reconsidering the way in which I structure self/peer assessment: using more anchor examples, a more scaffolded procedure, and a better age-appropriate/student-friendly assessment tool.
