Feedback and Revisions

Feedback is an important part of learning at Polaris.  While creating a project, students often exchange their work with other students and point out strengths and things needing improvement in their products.  Using a rubric, teachers and students give constructive feedback.  This feedback needs to be kind, specific, and helpful so that students feel supported.  Students use this feedback to revise work and make it stronger.  It isn't unusual to produce multiple drafts before the work is finally complete.  It's surprising how strong one’s work can become after going through this revision process.
