From the humanities to the sciences, many courses have assessments or activities that engage students in writing. As instructors, teaching fellows and teaching assistants, we often aim to support student learning by providing feedback on these written submissions, focusing on strengths and opportunities for growth. However, in some cases, student writing may contain harmful language and/or arguments, which can make the work difficult to assess. In this workshop, we will consider the foundations of effective feedback and introduce strategies for assessing student writing in a way that addresses harm and curricular violence.
