MS Word Tip
Commenting Students Papers
For four semesters, I have been using the Word Reviewing tool to insert
comments in students' papers which are submitted electronically. I believe that students are more likely to revise and less likely to feel
defensive about teacher comments on their papers.
Place cursor where ever you want to insert a comment, click on the
yellow "insert comment" button. Usually on the left of the toolbar. Type away! When the student hovers the mouse over the yellow
highlighting, your comments appear.
Make sure the box by screen tips is checked
