Drawing from the conversational transactions that take place in everyday life, this study puts into practice the idea of providing live responses that lead to live meanings as described by Louise Rosenblatt. By researching the effects of using audio clips as a form of feedback for student writing in place of written comments on an assignment, this research models social interactions which originate in classroom discussion. The study involved 31 high school freshmen attending a suburban public high school in Missouri and was conducted during a unit in which the students were to compose IRE Paragraphs, a standardized form of conveying an argument with a topic sentence, quotation from a credible source, and explanation of the quotation used. After listening to the feedback, data was collected using a response sheet. Students were then tracked to see which students made revisions, and what type of revision was made (searching for quality). The number of revisions was noted and added to the data.
