Play It Again, Sandra: The Use of Tape Cassettes to Evaluate Student Compositions.
Hays, Janice
Using tape cassettes in evaluating student writing takes less time to cover more comments than does writing comments. It also allows for more personal contact with students and permits a teacher to indicate more adequately how errors can be corrected. One helpful technique is for the teacher to leave the tape recorder on while trying to provide a correction to an awkward sentence, thereby allowing the student to hear the teacher trying various ways of correction before deciding on the most satisfactory one. This gives students a chance to hear how writing is generated and to gain some courage from hearing the teacher's struggle to write. Although it takes time to get used to using a tape cassette, the advantages make it worthwhile. (TJ)
