Sept. 19, 2–3 p.m.: A Genre Approach to Teaching Writing
Taking a genre approach to teaching writing can help your students move from thinking of writing as a task they perform for an audience of one (you) to thinking of writing as a genuine act of communication. In this T&P session, we will discuss compositionist Irene Clark’s article on a genre approach and consider how we can rethink our own approach to assigning writing through this lens.
Oct. 24, 2–3 p.m.: Revision-focused Feedback
In this T&P session, participants will hear findings from research about student responses to faculty feedback on their writing and learn strategies to prompt thoughtful revision from students.
Nov. 14, 2–3 p.m.: Minimal Marking
Put the pen down. In this T&P session, participants will learn about and practice a response technique called minimal marking. This technique scaffolds students’ active learning of sentence-level writing features in a way that “sticks.”
