Teaching in the Margins: Responding in Writing to Student Work
Professor Paul Saint-Amour, English
Tuesday, September 22, 2015 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Fisher-Bennett 330

Convener: Dianne Mitchell, CTL Graduate Fellow, English

Evaluating and commenting on student writing is a big part of our job as teachers and instructors in the humanities. But we don’t always think of it as “teaching.” In this workshop, we’ll discuss how to turn the chore of writing feedback into a pedagogical opportunity. We’ll talk about what kind of comments are most effective for fostering improvement in written work – and how to get students to actually read them!

All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the English department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.

Counts toward the CTL Teaching Certificate.
