Abstract

The Appraisal theory by Martin and White is the further development of Systematic Functional linguistics. The research, based on the three subdivisions of Appraisal Theory, including Engagement, Attitude and Graduation, analyzes the unique features of teachers’ intervention speech and peer feedback and compares the pedagogic value of the intervention speech in different types of peer feedback translation teaching mode and, thus summing up the elements that are contributed to the effect of the different teachers’ intervention speech on the overall pedagogic value of peer feedback translation teaching mode. According to the data analysis, it shows that soft focus teachers’ appraisal with soft focus can produce the highest pedagogic value in the teachers’ feedback-reassured type in peer feedback teaching mode. In teachers’ feedback extension type in peer feedback mode, teachers’ appraisal with sharp focus can effectively motivate the feedback to identify the lexical errors while it cannot effectively guide feedback to identify the textual errors such as cohesion. Based on the findings above, this research suggests some plausible ways to maximize the pedagogic value of peer feedback translation teaching mode, such as by identifying errors with firm and positive attitude and providing consolation to students later, which enables teachers to be aware of the indispensable role they should play in the peer feedback translation teaching mode besides encouraging the interaction between students and other improvement measures in order to promote the development of this teaching mode in the future.
