When you comment on student papers, do you wonder whether you could be doing it more efficiently and effectively? Do you wish you knew what kinds of responses best help students to improve their work? In this interactive workshop, Christy Friend will share results from recent research exploring how college students make use of instructor feedback, then present concrete strategies for responding to papers in ways that encourage good writing habits and motivate students to improve. Participants will discuss and collaboratively craft a response to a sample student paper, and the session will conclude with an informal question-and-answer session focused on specific writing issues group members have encountered in their teaching.
