Delaying the Grade: How to Get Students to Read Feedback | Cult of Pedagogy
6. Revision
I always offer students the opportunity to rewrite their essay. Above all else, my goal is to help students become better writers. If this means they have to do it a couple of times, then so be it. Depending on the assignment, these are the usual requirements:

The student must meet with me 1 to 3 times (depends on the student and the essay) before it is due. These meetings are quick “check-in” style meetings: What are you planning to do? What have you done? What questions do you have?
The student must make substantial revisions, not just grammatical edits.
The student must turn in the original and the updated draft on time.
