My inquiry is one of two ideas....first is the restructuring of my Advanced Composition class and trying new approaches to the five paragraph essays; but after hearing Janet use exigency, I think I am going to look at responding to student writing in terms of new rubrics, conferences, and using tools such as Google docs or Microsoft Word for responding. I feel as if there is not enough time to respond completely or to do it more than once per essay. I also want students to peer review but in a constructive way rather than say, good paper or correct a spelling problem. This goes back to me looking at rubric samples.
