Giving Feedback on Student Writing (for TAs) – Prerecorded Workshop

April 30 @ 5:00 pm EDT

Available on demand until April 30, 2023

This prerecorded workshop is taught by Stephanie Redekop

Graduate student TAs are frequently required to read and provide feedback on student writing, often within tight time constraints (be they quick grading timelines or short office hour appointments). While TAs are generally well equipped to give students feedback on the content of their written assignments, they may feel less prepared to offer meaningful feedback on their students’ writing itself. This 30-minute prerecorded workshop will discuss strategies for responding impactfully to student writing. We will discuss how to prioritize the most important writing issues and develop vocabularies to address common problems in student writing. We will also learn how to present feedback in a way that does not simply identify errors, but empowers students to become more effective writers in the future.
