Today we looked at creating guidelines to writing a good feedback comment. The year 6 and 7 students at Huzzah have spent some time coming up with a clear list. Its interesting to note how they have grouped them into four main areas.

As you continue to work on the your suggestions and guidelines think about how you might want to group them.

At Huzzah they have also written about why we want people to leave a comment. Please read what they have to say and let me know what you think.

Another thing you might want to do is show your blog visitors an example of a good comment. As you research other blogs take note of any comments you come across that work well. In a future lesson we will look at how to send the readers of your blog to that comment through a link.
