Whether as a first-time Teaching Assistant or a seasoned veteran, most teachers eventually face the dreaded mountain of papers. In the frenzy of grading, meaningful (and concise) evaluation and feedback can seem impossible, but don't give up hope. Come to this workshop for an overview of practices for evaluating student writing as well as a discussion of rubrics, forms of feedback, and strategies for speeding up the grading process.
This workshop will also have time for individual work on developing or refining your own rubrics. Please bring:
- an existing rubric for an assignment in your class or a class you might teach
- the assignment sheet
- a possible assignment sheet
- any/all of the above.
This is a TA-to-TA workshop, run by one of CITL's Graduate Affiliates.
