Toward a Three-Step Pedagogy for Fostering Self-Assessment in a Second Language Writing Classroom
Liang, John
CATESOL Journal, v26 n1 p100-119 2014
This article describes a three-step pedagogy aimed at developing college ESL students' ability to assess and evaluate their own writing through intentional learner training. The three pedagogical steps are teacher modeling, guided peer assessment, and independent self-assessment. To illustrate, a set of scaffolded instructional procedures are delineated and demonstrated. The article then concludes with an argument that with intentional teacher modeling as well as consistent guided learner practice, college ESL student writers are capable of monitoring, assessing, and evaluating their own learning progress competently, confidently, and systematically.
