 Message: Bonjour à toutes/tous!
This is a question for AP language and culture teachers. I am looking for advice/best practices in giving my AP students feedback on their presentational speaking assignments. I have a rubric that I designed based on scoring info in the College Board's AP French course description. In my feedback to my students, I don't go into minutiae of grammar or vocab issues, unless I hear a trend and/or the vocabulary in question is relevant to our current theme or a theme we've already covered. My question is two-fold: 
  1. do you give your students written or recorded feedback on this task? and
  2. what kind of feedback is it (focused on content and/or form? syntactical and lexical errors? pronunciation pointers? 'holistic' feedback?)
I would really love to hear how others are providing kids with actionable comments on their work!
Merci d'avance!
