Assignment Assistance, Rubric Reboot, and Ten-Plus Tips for Improving Student Writing:  A Two-Morning Workshop

WHO: Presenters are Nicole Bailey, Director of the ISU Writing Center, and Rob Perrin, Chairperson of the Department of English

WHAT:           A two-session workshop. Day 1 will include presentations on designing effective writing assignments, creating useful evaluation rubrics, and enhancing students’ writing experiences by following recommendations from both writing teachers and Writing Center tutors. Day 2 will be an informal discussion session, with opportunities for participants to develop, revise, or refine assignments and rubrics for their classes.

WHEN:      Wednesday, May 29, 10:00–11:30 &   Thursday, May 30, 10:00–11:30

WHERE:         Root Hall A275 (the Department of English’s Laptop Lab); located on the long second-floor hallway that runs east–west. We’ll post signs.

WHY: If writing is to play an integral part in our courses, then preparing effective assignments, making decisions about evaluation strategies, and adopting “best practices” will enhance the work.
