Responding to Writing: Rubrics, Response, and a Common Vocabulary

Wednesday, February 28 2018
@ 2:15 PM- 3:15 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.

Rubrics are often touted as a time-saving approach to grading and responding, but their real value lies in the ways they create a common vocabulary that focuses attention on concepts, skills, and genre features that matter. Join colleagues for a discussion of ways responding to writing helps students take up the vocabulary of your course and discipline.

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