NEW!  You can now choose a morning or afternoon session of this workshop.  Please only register for one session.

Teaching assistants are an integral part of Writing Intensive courses; as such, this workshop provides resources to help TAs manage the special demands of Writing Intensive courses. We welcome novice, veteran, and prospective TAs to attend this session.

The interactive workshop provides TAs

  • practice in assessing writing assignments and norming grades with colleagues
  • methods to balance content and mechanics in the assessment process
  • strategies for conferencing with students about their writing
  • resources to support peer review in small group or discussion sections
