Commenting on Student Writing (Workshop)

Writing assignments are key components in classes across the university, ranging from lab reports to research papers, memos to plays. However, the process of responding to student writing has the potential to be extremely time consuming and difficult to strategize. In this workshop, DePaul's resident writing experts offer guidelines to prioritizing comments, composing helpful end notes, and avoiding "over-commenting" on student work.

Led by: Julie Bokser (LAS) and Matthew Pearson (UCWbL)
Introduced by: Rana Husseini (TLA)
