Michael Reder (2006) states that assigning student writing is an “efficient way not only to engage students with the content of the material they are learning but also to foster the development of the thinking abilities we want in our students.” Participants in this workshop will discuss research-based strategies for designing, assigning, and responding to student writing in our various disciplines. We will examine ways to scaffold writing-to-learn activities with longer writing assignments. We will also practice teacher-friendly strategies for responding to student writing. As a high-impact practice, writing-intensive classrooms are particularly effective in engaging and retaining first-year students.
