Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 "If we want students to produce meaningful writing, we must design meaningful assignments." --Erika Lindemann, Dean UNC College of Arts & Sciences "The quality of assignments directly relates to the quality of instruction and student work." --Lindsay Clare, in a report released by University of California titled "Using Teachers' Assignments as an Indicator of Classroom Practice." Building Assignment Sheets Start by identifying what you want students to take away from the assignment. Imagine the kind of essay/response youwant students to write. Ask yourself whatkind of assignment you want to read. Then work backwards to the specific instructions likely to produce it. Make your assignment sheets user-friendly. Divide them into sections: - description of assignment - requirements for length, format, & documentation - process/ sequence of tasks - due dates - connection to course material & concepts Suggestions: Your assignment sheet should serve as a model of good writing--and of the kind of writing you wantstudents to produce. Point to Ponder... Ask students to go beyond mere regurgitation of knowledge. Give them room for creativity.Give students a real or hypothetical audience.Choose words carefully. State explicitly what you want students to do, and use directive verbs precisely.Provide a purpose or goal statement for the assignment.Sequence activities to build toward the final product.Make time in class to review assignment sheet in depth. Comment on aspects of the assignment and your reasoning behind them.Discuss models--both professional and student examples.
