A suggested model for the writing of comments follows this pattern:

1.        Something positive about the student as a student of English 1

2.        An area where student shows greatest improvement or strength:
                   Must give a concrete example (achieved a goal, worked hard on assignments, improved level of
          participation, writing, speaking…)

3.        Choose one area where the student did well (oral, writing, discussion, participation) and why he/she did well.

4.        An area that the student could continue to improve on and include a general statement            about something in
          future studies could focus on in the second semester to improve in this area
