• What are our responsibilities as teachers?

To treat students fairly and subjectively in a fashion that will help them learn stuff. To become more involved with the assessment process. To create a learning environment where everyone feels safe to express themselves.

  • How can we fulfill our responsibilities as teachers as we respond to student texts?

By constantly reevaluating our standards of assessment and level of reading of students texts By being supportive and constructive rather than marking up papers By trying to read the paper not the student, Find out what the students want from the teacher, rather than assuming what will help them, itís the teachers job to find out what is going to be the most successful way of helping certain students. Have standards, but make sure that they are your/our? own (in reference to internalizing standardized tests, rather than externalizing them).
