This upcoming semester at my university, I'll be moving to the actual English Department, which means that I'll be teaching English majors. I've been given three sections of "Advanced Writing," which should be comprised mostly of 3rd and 4th year students. While I've taught writing before at my previous uni and in various camps, it's my first time doing it with such high-level students.
I think preparation is key and I've torn myself away from the beach here in beautiful Koh Lanta (which is fabulous by the way) to get a start on it. Here's a writing grading rubric I've come up with. I'll use it for my two big assignments and the midterm and final exam. It's very much a work in progress so any feedback would be appreciated from you, my smart readers. I'm wondering whether it's focused too much on form/conventions of writing and too little on the actual ideas. Thoughts?
