Aimée Morrison, over at Hook & Eye, offers a blog post about getting students to be better writers.
Here’s a snippet:
“I’ve dramatically reduced the length of writing assignments I give to students. I figure if I want to help them write and think better or more clearly, they need to write more carefully, more often, and revise and rework more substantively. If I want to teach careful writing, assign more frequent writing, and make rewriting integral to the course, well, the assignments have to be shorter.”
