I think student involvement in creating a foundation for feedback is wonderful. A simple question like, “What would you expect this to look like?” can go a long way to helping a kid grow as an independent learner.

I like balance, but I don’t think there is such a thing as too much narrative feedback. Thanks for weighing in on this.

I would add two things. One: Unfortunately, part of the problem is the plethora of poor rubrics in circulation. I have seen good rubrics raise the level of output, conversation, and growth in children. I am a fan of having the kids help you develop the rubrics you/they will be using. A solid rubric given at the beginning of a project let’s the kids know what to expect. My second point is: balance. There is a place for a solid, well thought out rubric and there is a place for narrative feedback that you are suggesting. As they say, too much of anything is bad for you and your students!
