Q: Is overt error correction a part of the Penpride Mentor’s reply to a Penpride Scribe’s messages?
A: No, because we don’t consider it helpful in any important way, to do so. Our replies are crafted to model the correct forms in place of problem forms. We don’t highlight specific errors, nor do we even suggest that a “mistake” has been identified, beyond supplying a correct rendering for comparison. It is an approach that we have shown preserves the desired positive affect between scribes and mentors.
