IELTS Task 1 Process Writing--2nd Teacher Feedback Form

(TESOL Worksheets--IELTS Task 1)

Google: drivedocspub

This is the 4th in my series in my attempts to turn IELTS task 1 writing into process writing.  It follows from the self-editing checklist, and the peer-editing checklist, and the 1st teacher feedback form.

In the first teacher feedback from, I provided very little feedback.  (I only underlined problem sentences, and did not provide any detailed written comments).  In this feedback form, I used my error coding sheet (from here) and also provided more detailed comments in the comment  section.  I also supplemented this with a short talk with each student.

The students were then instructed to re-write their essay one final time for a final draft.

Did you correctly choose the active or passive verb for each sentence?

In passive verbs, did you remember to use the “be +V3” form?

If the verb is not in the passive or continuous tense, you do not need to use a "be" verb.  Check to make sure there are no extra “be” verbs in your essay.

Parts of speech

Great Job
See Comments
Are all the words being correctly used as the appropriate part of speech?

Opinions and outside information

Great Job
See Comments
Remember, an IELTS task 1 essay should contain no personal opinions, no speculating, and no outside information.  (Task 2 will have opinions, but not task 1).  

Good job
Too short (You must write at least 150 words, or you will lose points)
Too long (You won’t lose any points if your essay is too long, but in the exam you will lose valuable time.)
