Responding to and Evaluating Student Writing: Maximizing Your Time with Conferences & Peer Review
Monday, September 16, 2019
Writing Center (Commons), 6171, Helen C. White Hall
Research on writing across the disciplines shows that instructors can save time and enhance student engagement by facilitating discussions about student writing in-progress. This workshop outlines two effective and manageable approaches for doing so: (1) one-to-one conferencing and (2) peer review. We’ll discuss how to prepare for both activities and highlight best practices for helping students develop their ideas, plan revisions, and offer constructive feedback to peers.
