Cover Sheets for Student Self-Critiques/Reflections

Sample Student Self-Critique (Cover Sheet) for a Paper

Professor Deborah Brandt, English Department, UW-Madison
To encourage students to think critically about their writing and to encourage students to develop as writers over the semester, some instructors find it very effective to ask students to write a cover sheet (or memo or letter) for each paper, responding to questions like these.  You can, of course, adapt the questions you ask to reinforce the key elements of a particular assignment or genre.  You can use students' self-critiques as a starting point for personalizing your feedback on their work.
