Telling It Like It Is—And How It Could Be Better: Essay Marking that is Valid and Reliable.

Based on work undertaken during his doctoral studies of reading and writing, a dissertation about writing across the curriculum, and experience teaching writing courses, Dr. Rogers leads participants in reading real student essays and testing an essay-marking procedure that combines the speed of rubric-based marking with the close marking that shows students their writing problems—and how to write better. Participants also see how to connect their feedback to new-media products that make it easier than ever for students to learn to write clean surface grammar. (2 hours)
