Sample Student Writing
These students were in basic writing and regular 1301/1302 courses. These are unfinished drafts, but the sort of draft that you will have to find constructive ways to respond to. Using Lindeman's rubric for response, draft a response to all samples. We will get into groups to share.
Writing Across Borders
- video on working with second-language writers
- How do you think this information alters your perception?
- How might this video change your classroom practices?
Shaughnessy / Haswell Discussion
- Haswell's Gaining Ground in College Writing & Shaughnessy's text present very different ways of viewing student texts & solutions. What do you think of each?
- Haswell's argument is difficult, especially if you have not read the whole book. What makes sense? What doesn't? As a prospective teacher, how does it help you see student writing (or basic writing) in a different way?
