Writing Intensive Teaching

Instructor provided feedback
Peer review
 
 
The reaction papers are short original essays based on class reading, lecture, etc. Students do not summarize outside sources except as necessary to set up their personal and subjective reaction. The goal is for the student to provide a value-added commentary that augments the assigned material. Consequently, originality and creativity is encouraged; there is no single acceptable interpretation, explanation, analysis or evaluation.
Writing assignments are distributed evenly. The first draft of the first reaction paper is due 1/3 of the way through the course; the first two peer reviews are due the following week. The final draft of the first reaction paper is due by the midpoint of the semester. This pattern repeats for the second reaction paper and the final two peer reviews.
