On Teaching Seminar
Wednesday, February 5, 2014 12 PM - 1 PM
You know the feeling. You are staring down that stack of papers ― or that list of files on the screen ― and you know it is time to start grading. Hopefully, you are excited to see what your students have accomplished in response to your assignment, but it is equally possible that you find yourself in this moment with a sense of dread.
You are not alone. Grading writing is a complex task. The expectations of multiple stakeholders shape the process. Even experienced teachers talk about the need to prepare emotionally to do it.
This On Teaching session will be an opportunity to join in an open conversation with colleagues from across campus: to share the woes, the victories, and the overall experience of grading writing. We’ll talk about our purposes for assigning writing and how those purposes influence how we grade the writing. We’ll also talk about the concrete logistics of doing that grading. We will have a chance to share tips and techniques that can make it faster, smoother, and more fair. Participants will also receive resources to help guide their grading practice.
Please join us! If you’ve found tools that help you with the paper-grading process, we would love to hear about them. If you’re looking for some new tools, this is also a conversation for you.
