Using a Feedback Chart for Revisions in Theater

Fourth grade students in Chris Heller’s theater residency at PS 239q devise scenes based on The Private Notebook of Katie Roberts, Age 11, a text from the curriculum. Throughout the process students share their scenes and give each other feedback. Feedback is charted to help students remember and apply feedback. Follow one student, Noel, as he develops his character’s dialogue in one scene, incorporating feedback into his revision process.


  • Use Feedback Charts to set goals for revision

  • Chart Feedback to hold onto it for next time and remind students of what they are revising

  • Acknowledge improvement
