Chalk Talk: Student Comments: The Above-Average Student
One thing that teachers have to do that can sometimes be difficult is to generate comments describing how students are doing in class. Such comments may be ready-made, with teachers being able to select applicable ones for each student, but they are more credible if they are personalized by the teacher. These comments may appear on report cards, progress reports, notes to parents, etc. What kind of information should these comments contain? The most important thing is to make sure that the comment tells exactly what the student is doing well. Parents want to know how their children are doing, so it is important to be as specific as possible. A comment such as “the child does good work in the class” is too generic. When it comes to describing above-average students, teachers of course should comment on how they are excelling academically. Perhaps they are fluent readers who are able to comprehend what they are reading; such specific skills should be emphasized in the comments.
