Responding to Student Writing: Best Practices from the Research

Thursday, January 29, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Suzanne Lane, Director, WRAP

Jan/29 Thu 10:00AM-12:00PM E39-335

Enrollment: Unlimited: Advance sign-up required

What kind of feedback is most effective in helping students to develop and structure their ideas, and to communicate them effectively in writing? This workshop will draw on composition research to explore the range of instruction and responding practices, from rubrics to peer review to individual conferences, and when each is effective. By considering feedback in relation to other forms of instruction, participants will learn to provide the kinds of comments and strategies that will help students understand how to improve both their specific texts and their abilities as writers.

Sponsor(s): Comparative Media Studies/Writing
