Researchers in college composition and second-language acquisition have a lot to say about correction and feedback strategies on student papers, especially when improvement of student writing skills is the dominant objective.
In this workshop, GSIs will explore some of the research and, using samples of student writing, work on feedback strategies that have the highest likelihood of helping students develop their analytical thinking and academic writing. Khuyen Nguyen, director of the Student Learning Center’s Writing Program, will also be present to discuss the tutoring and workshops offered to R&C students and to respond to GSIs’ questions.
The workshop is scheduled for Nov. 16, 1:00 to 2:30, in 309 Sproul. Please see the Workshops on Teaching page for details and registration.
