This training session will focus on how to support students in the process of developing writing skills. Over the course of the session, we will discuss various approaches to engaging your students through writing, both through in-class writing activities and assigned writing outside the classroom. TAs in this workshop will review key principles of effective grading that serve to support the development of writing skills in students. Participants will also have the opportunity to practice a variety of short writing exercises that can be incorporated into their tutorials, and will leave with a range of tools and strategies to support undergraduate writing.
