Description

Many of the concepts and practices that we want our students to learn would be well served by writing assignments, but without formal training in grammar and with an already full workload, how can teachers add a(nother) set of papers to our grading piles? Drawing on research in the field of composition studies, as well as nearly two decades of experience teaching writing courses, I will provide concrete practices applicable to all disciplines for commenting on and grading written student work—without retraining as grammarians and without giving up entire weekends for paper grading.
