Are you new to grading student writing? Wondering how to respond effectively, efficiently, and fairly? This half-day orientation is intended for new or returning Teaching Assistants (TAs) and Graduate Instructors who will be responding to and grading student writing for the first time in Fall 2015. Over the course of the afternoon, we’ll discuss general approaches to responding to, commenting on, and grading student writing.

You’ll have the opportunity to practice with writing samples from actual students in various disciplines, and to work with writing specialists to develop specific grading and commenting strategies for your course. You’ll also learn about the resources available through the Center for Writing, and you’ll have the chance to talk with a panel of veteran TAs about their experiences working with student writing.
