Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM

DeWitt Wallace Library 309

Britt Abel, Director of Writing and Department of German and Russian Studies, will present "What’s at Stake in Low-Stakes Writing?"  After reading Gary Hafer’s Embracing Writing a few years ago, I realized that I had become complacent about the ways I used writing in my courses. I decided it was time to re-think-to consider how to infuse my classes with more low-stakes writing and how to build a culture of writing among my students.  I’ll give you some concrete examples about the changes I made, and along the way, we’ll talk about what low-stakes writing actually is, why it’s important, and how it can help your classroom discussions. We’ll also have time for discussion and sharing tips on low-stakes writing in the classroom.  All faculty welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
