Are you a beginning instructor looking for advice about responding to student writing? Or are you an experienced professor hoping to streamline your efforts? Whatever your experience level, on one count we can agree: responding effectively to student writing is one of our most difficult jobs. This workshop invites instructors from all disciplines and experience levels to join us for a hands-on discussion about responding to student writing and about motivating students to revise and improve their writing. We will practice responding to a short piece of writing, review tips and strategies for focusing our efforts, review current research on the subject, and discuss a variety of different approaches to motivate students to improve their writing.
