The Text Highlight Tool: Feedback with Colour #519

In this practice-oriented session, participants will learn how the text highlight tool, a feature in word processing programs, can serve as a low-tech option for corrective feedback in the online classroom. The use of this tool can enhance corrective feedback by using colour to highlight grammar, vocabulary, and mechanical errors. The presenter will use student samples to illustrate three ways that highlighting with colour can be applied to ESL or EFL student paragraphs.
