In the first place, students were provided annotated models and notes to help them understand the linguistic requirements of their assignment. The students used these notes to write their first draft and submitted these to their language coaches. The language coaches provided feedback on these drafts using the SLATE feedback practices. In addition to individual feedback, additional notes and activities were designed and given to the students that address common problems. Students used the individual and group feedback to revise their drafts and then resubmitted these to their coaches.

In addition, language coaches could also suggest alternatives as part of the Feedback. In the Encouragement stage, the final stage of providing comments on students’ drafts, the language coaches ended their consultation on a positive note. In addition to the three required stages, language coaches sometimes also included three optional stages: Recap, Recommendations and Expanded Explanation. The purpose of these optional stages was to enhance the feedback provided in different ways: by summarizing and identifying priorities for the student to address in their next draft/assignment; by suggesting activities and resources for students to work on independently; and by providing additional explanations and examples.
