  6. 6. <ul><li>Hello! Greetings from the ipl2! </li></ul><ul><li>Thank you for your question about how to look at constellations and the number of constellations visible in the Northern Hemisphere. I have found a couple of sources that can provide you with the answer. </li></ul><ul><li>1. I first found the answer to your answer on a constellations page created by Thinkquest. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>This site describes constellations and lists all the constellations that are in the sky. I chose this site because it is a site made by children for children! </li></ul><ul><li>2. I also found the answer to your question on the website, Windows to the Universe. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>I chose this site because on the first page you can read all about constellations. Once you scroll down the page, on the left – hand side you can click on “Northern Hemisphere Constellations” to see a list of all the constellations in the Northern Hemisphere. To find out more information you can click on any constellation to read more about it and to see what it looks like in the sky! </li></ul><ul><li>3. The answer to your question is also on the website, The Dome of the Sky. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>I chose this site because there is a constellation list of all the constellations in the Northern Hemisphere. You can also click on any constellation name to learn more about it and to see what it looks like. </li></ul><ul><li>To find all of these sites I went to Google and typed in, “constellations visible in the northern hemisphere.” </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>Good luck with your paper. I hope this helps. If you have more questions, feel free to write us back. Thank you for using ipl2! </li></ul>
  7. 7. And the feedback given… <ul><li>Hi [student name], </li></ul><ul><li>You covered the six mandatory elements and your response looks great. You described your search terms and the place you looked for the resources. Great job! </li></ul><ul><li>-[Signed name] </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>What does this feedback get right? </li></ul><ul><li>What does it miss? </li></ul><ul><li>What kind of feedback would you provide? </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Here’s one possible feedback example… </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Hi [student name]. What a fun question! I like that the ThinkQuest site was created by children. Makes it much more approachable for the user since they are in 6 th grade. Your search description was also really clear-it would be easy for the user to follow it! </li></ul><ul><li>One thing you didn’t provide is some information about why you selected all these sites. This is part of citing your sources: </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>I don’t see much in your answer about the “how to look at constellations” portion of the user’s question. If some of these sites address that, you probably want to point out where. It’s a good idea to reread the question before you send your answer so you can double check that you addressed everything that was asked. The ipl2 For Kids has a collection about Astronomy (For Kids--Math & Science--Air & Space--Astronomy): </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>You could also try a search engine. One site I found that looked good was called “Sky Watch” from Discovery Education. I found it searching “how to see constellations” on Yahoo! Kids : </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>Overall, you did a great job with this question. Your response was so friendly and approachable! Thanks for the hard work. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Remember, there’s no one “right” way to provide feedback, but there are more and less thorough ways to do it. Your feedback for this question might look different! </li></ul>
