This paper attempts to provide second language writing teachers with some key considerations in providing written feedback. To begin with, the author reviews reasons supporting the practice of giving feedback on student written errors. Next, he presents a typology of written errors and discussed different ways of offering corrective feedback. Finally, he summarizes key considerations in giving feedback on student written errors in a table.
