Description:

Facilitated by Susan Korba, Writing Centre

One of the most challenging aspects of teaching is the need to grade students' written work; in particular, evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of student writing and providing succinct and useful commentary can prove difficult. Teachers often feel overwhelmed by the sheer volume of assignments/essays to be marked and/or unsure about how to address students' specific problems; students often feel frustrated by a lack of specific feedback and a clear explanation of what they've done "wrong." In this session, we will discuss expectations around marking written assignments (those of teachers and of students) and explore strategies for responding to student writing that will result in fair and consistent grading and specific and useful feedback.
