Process Over Product: Allowing Student Researchers to Think for Themselves / - 0 views

  •  
    From a refreshing series on "teaching fails", a composition instructor describes the difficulty in scaffolding a research assignment that both provides clarity about expectations and allows for fruitful exploration. Here, the use of pedagogical and technological innovations (rubrics and screencasting) did not succeed in getting students to engage with the process--but I do think that they gave the instructor some evidence to better understand what went wrong.

Using Your Syllabus as a Learning Resource - 1 views

    The author uses a syllabus so detailed that it can function like a textbook, and offers specific tips on how she uses the syllabus every day.

Using Google Documents for Grading - 0 views

  •  
    An intriguing description of using Google Forms as a writing rubric (or more general marking guide). I like the goal of "reduc(ing) the amount of time that I have to spend on administrative grading-related tasks, so that I can really focus my attention on reading and responding to students' work." I can see how electronic rubrics could be a time-saver, and Google Forms are dead easy to set up.

Working Toward a Fair Assessment of Students' Reflective Writing - 1 views

  •  
    "So the solution may be in having a well defined rubric but being able to apply it with discretion and sensitivity to individual learner differences." Rubrics seem to have garnered quite a bit of attention as a teaching and grading tool, and reflecting on their design and appropriate use seems important.
