Writing Intensive Teaching

Rubric - we will provide a rubric for each lab that the student can follow to see how the points are weighted. Instructor gives the feedback on most of the labs. On one lab near the end of the course they get a peer review and then they do the revisions.
Lab write-up are required following each lab experience. They have one week to complete the write-up. It will follow the usual lab format of introduction, methods, results, discussion and conclusions. Data will have to be analyzed and presented. The discussion and conclusion will require interpretation and a conclusion to be drawn.
There are 10 labs throughout the course and a write-up follows each lab. After the first 2 labs they will be able to rewrite the lab to correct their writing.
Teaching assistants are used to administer the lab portion of the course. These graduate students are selected from our masters and doctoral candidates within the Exercise Physiology graduate program, usually after one year in the program. Admission to this graduate program is very competitive and requires a writing sample and 3 academic letters of recommendation. The GTAs undergo 3 training sessions with the instructor prior to the course. These assistants administer the lab experience, announce the writing assignments, and with the CWP provide assistance during the writing. Grading is performed by both the assistants and instructor. Two labs are allowed a revision.
