Assignments / Rubrics

Methods and Strategies




Retooling Assignments / Syllabi


One of the goals of the Writing Enriched Curriculum is to establish a common language used in the expectations of student communication across different classes. By using some of the language established in the fourteen criteria, the hope is that students are able to quickly understand and relate new course material to processes and methods they used in other classes. To make this happen, student assignments and course syllabi may need to be updated to incorporate some of this language; however, these changes do not interfere with the content expectations of these classes. To illustrate these types of changes, the documents below include comments and suggested rephrasing of values/outcomes which demonstrate the before/after language.
