In light of the Chancellor’s message requiring all MU classes to be held online for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester, we wanted to reach out to offer you support as you work to move your Writing Intensive classes online. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Christy Goldsmith (GoldsmithC@missouri.edu) for help in setting up writing assignments in Canvas, using Canvas Speedgrader and rubrics to assess writing online, setting up writing groups for peer response, or any other task related to writing in the online environment.
