Four Rules for Teaching Writing:
Image result for image: joy of writing
Always give writing assignments that

1. you will enjoy reading;
2. students will enjoy writing;
3. students will enjoy reading what others in the class have written
4. you will enjoy writing.

If any one of these conditions were not true, then it probably wasn't a very good assignment.

Advice I give to my students: When your words surprise you, you know you are writing.

Grammar and Mechanics
I recently led a session on grammar and mechanics for a university wide committee on writing at Drexel University. This session was in response to several complaints from committee members about all of the errors students make. So I wrote a document that helped me lead the committee members through the "errors" issue. They found it useful, so I'm posting it here in case other WPAs might want to use or amend it. I know it could use some reorganizing, but . . .

Go to Important Links on the sidebar to the right, and I think you'll find it.
