Responding to Writing: Beyond the Red Ink, a film - Students Talk about Teachers' Comments

Thursday, March 08 2018
@ 11:45 AM- 12:45 PM

Move Beyond the Red Ink to response strategies that actually work! Our Responding to Writing workshop series will help you to fine-tune your approach to feedback, rubrics, and commenting so that you get the results you want.

Have you ever wondered why students' revisions seem to ignore the comments you so laboriously wrote? Are you interested in helping your students understand and use your comments?

During this brown bag lunch, we will view a short film featuring seven students who talk "openly about the role teachers' comments have played in their lives as college writers and offer their own advice, in their own words to writing teachers." The film will be followed by a lively discussion with colleagues.

You are welcome to attend any number of the workshops in this series.
