Helping Students Get Reading and Writing Assignments

Assignment with an A+ grade.Grading assignments submitted by students with a wide range of writing abilities ranks high on the list of challenges experienced by graduate student teaching assistants.  What if you could provide your students with the techniques they need to get more out of the reading and become better writers?  

UCSB's TA Development Program offers an informative workshop that will put you on the fast track towards offering these resources to your students.

Helping Students Get Reading and Writing Assignments

Friday October 28th, 1-3 p.m.  

This workshop starts with a simple question: what types of writing and reading are demanded in your field? It moves from this to helping teachers and tutors understand a series of activities that can help students begin to learn the conventions of academic genres. This sort of work will clarify for folks what the demands in their field are, how to communicate those demands to their students, and work through a variety of exercises designed to help students at UCSB think about exactly what “college level” writing might be and how to do it.
