Responding to Student Writing: Better Ways to Grade?

Wednesday, October 8, 2014
11:15am – 1:10pm

Storrs Campus
ROWE 321

Responding to drafts and grading student papers are among the most time-consuming things we do in writing-intensive courses across the disciplines. In this session we’ll debunk some common grading practices that research suggests simply don’t result in much learning (like copy-editing student drafts); we’ll also explore pragmatic strategies that work better. Responding to student writing will always take time and care, but it need not involve endless hours of correcting and suffering.
