Supports Proven Pedagogy

Research shows that better feedback drives better revision, and that revision drives growth. Learn how Writable uses scaffolded, authentic feedback – from student self-review, anonymous peer review, and teacher feedback – to help drive purposeful revision and writing growth.

“The research is clear: providing students time for structured practice, coaching them to give quality feedback to one another, and engaging in meaningful revision can all help writers grow.”

Dr. Troy Hicks, Professor of English & Education, Central Michigan University
