Last week I discussed the importance of having rubrics for your class. Now, I'm going to give you some tips on the nitty gritty of actually creating clear and fair rubrics.
Rubrics can be extremely useful in teaching, and this is part one in discussing how to create clear and fair rubrics.
As I said last week, I’m doing a series of posts that I hope will help new teachers and that will show students some of the tricks of the trade so that they can maybe figure out how to work with teachers and do well in “the system.” This week’s post discusses how to craft major assignments (as if you couldn’t tell by the title).
Throughout your college career, you’re going to (if you haven’t already) run into teachers who are difficult. I don’t mean the good-gosh-his-tests-are-hard difficult, I mean the I-think-my-teacher-might-be-at-least-partially-evil difficult. These instructors are often unfair, unprofessional, and disrespectful. Here’s the Obi-Wan Kenobi list of how to use the Force to your advantage and save your GPA from the Dark Side’s grasp.
Sometimes, it can feel intimidating to sign up for a class with over 100 seats available on the roster when you’re used to classes that have no more than 30-something students in them.
