Event Details

In this 'Show and Share' webinar Laura Gibbs will guide you through a mini-investigation modeled on The Meaningful Writing Project (see MeaningfulWritingProject.net). You will have an opportunity to brainstorm feedback strategies and project design approaches that could support meaningful writing in your classes. Laura will share different approaches to ungrading and alternative assessment to see which might be the best fit for the writing process that took shape in your brainstorming.
