Responding to Students (and their Writing)
|Time:||4:00 PM until 5:30 PM|
|Date:||Thursday, February 07, 2013|
|Location:||Wood Hall Room 108|
During the workshop, we will discuss Sideshadowing, a process developed by Dr. Nancy Welch. By asking students for their reactions to their drafts BEFORE they hand them in, sideshadowing allows teachers to make sure the responses we write meet our students’ needs as developing writers. When teachers respond not only to the words on the page but also to our students intentions and difficulties in the margins, we reduce our time spent responding while simultaneously making the responses we craft more meaningful to our students.
