It’s that time of the semester when students start to wonder what they can do to boost their final grades.
High standards coupled with high expectations — including encouragement, not derision — create real student success.
The importance of encouraging students who are weighed down by preprofessional courses to take a class for — dare I say it? — pleasure.
But I am ready to ask students to do more self-assessments, and to give their "grading" as much weight as mine.
A professor decides it’s time to reconceive the way he comments on essay assignments.
Students try harder, and learn more, when your grading includes rewards, rather than just punishments.
In the end-of-the-semester crush, our students don’t do their best work in all-night cram sessions, and neither do we.
