How we roll around here…

This little snippet (click the image to enlarge and clarify) shows how we edit and score papers for webinar and online Independent Study students using iAnnotate on the iPad. We do the same for local co-op students, only those assignments are done on paper with fabulous pens from JetPens.com.

This paper, from a Level 2 webinar class, was a 1-paragraph summary from an outside source about Emperor Justinian. You can see that the lesson included work with bibliographies and parenthetical references. The student included the bibliography entry below the paragraph, not shown in this picture. The student color-coded the required techniques from earlier lessons, which we made sure were used correctly. The editing codes refer to a grammar guide that explains the details behind every edit so the student can revise the paper correctly. The red box that falls off the right side of the page (with the 3) takes the student to a comment that gives suggestions for fixing that confusing sentence. The yellow shape at the bottom is part of a “thumbs up” stamp with a positive comment typed near it. We send such a draft back to the student who revises and submits one more time for a final score on the paper. When it comes to taking the mystery and misery out of learning to write, this is how we roll here at Writing Foundations!
