They Write More...You Grade Less

Session Description

This session is about blending Google Docs and writing instruction in secondary schools. You'll participate in a writing protocol called "Frankenstein Free Response Questions" where students write individually and then collaboratively peer edit to become better writers. Not only do students have to think about their writing more, but the teacher's grading load is reduced by two-thirds.
