Once students submit their ideas to an Online RoundTable, it's time for them to review their peers' submissions and provide them with feedback and comments to continue the discussion.

A great way to help students develop these responses is by setting peer feedback stems. They act as a starting point for students when they are learning to give meaningful peer feedback. Sentence starters can also support students who are developing their writing skills such as ELL learners.


Here's how to access this setting:

  1. Select Peer Feedback above the prompt.

2. There is a pre-populated list of sentence starters you can toggle on. You can make any edits to these to suit the needs of your class.

Additionally, you can write your own custom peer feedback sentence stems.

3. These questions will now appear at the end of each students’ submission in the comment tab for their reference.

Parlay Tip #1: Use the anonymous feature if your students are still getting used to writing with an audience and/or providing constructive peer feedback. As they become more comfortable with the process, you can switch your Online RoundTables to non-anonymous.

Parlay Tip #2: If you would like to reuse the sentence stems you've customized or edited, you can duplicate the RoundTable to carry these over.
