Research has shown that increasing the complexity and number of high-stakes writing assignments, such as timed tests and extended research essays, has not yielded “better writing.” Yet the call for better writing from legislators, administrators, and employers to use these high-stakes assessments to achieve that ill-defined outcome continues.
How can educators develop an effective environment for better writing without abandoning high-stakes assignments altogether? Join our professional development webinar with John P. Graham Teaching Professor, Dr. Gary Hafer, to find out.
Better Writing for You & Your Students:
Crafting Quick and Constructive
Responses to Student Writing
Thursday, August 7 @ 1 PM EDT
In this webinar, participants will learn how to respond to students’ low-stakes (ungraded) writing, and transition them to high-stakes (graded) assignments within the classroom and their professional lives.
This is an active learning session, designed for both K-12 and academic educators.
As always, all registrants will receive a copy of the recording and additional resources for continued learning. Even if you can’t make the live event, we encourage you to sign up to receive these valuable resources!
