Beyond Hand-Wringing: How the Writing Fellows—people, resources, techniques—can help you get your students to write better!
Tuesday, October 31st 12:15p-1:45p
Woods Classroom, Harrison Libraries
William Major, Professor of English, Hillyer and Warren Goldstein, Chair of the A&S History Department and Co-Coordinator of the Writing Fellows Program, will walk participants through resources available to them via the Writing Fellows Program and Library, including online resources curated by the DTH Writing Initiative. In addition, Bill and Warren will demonstrate how to use one of those principal resources, John C. Bean's Engaging Ideas to integrate writing into any course. Finally, they will offer some simple strategies to help teachers provide genuinely effective feedback to students on their writing. (Spoiler alert: heavy markup or close editing of student writing DOES NOT WORK! What does? Come and find out!)
Looking forward to seeing you there!
