Sample Correspondence and Written Feedback
For each class I teach, I create a course site that serves as a space for class discussions, a means to communicate, and a repository for class materials. Currently I use my institution's course management system, Canvas. However, when faced with the limitations of another CMS at my previous institution, I created independent course websites holding the syllabus, weekly blogging assignments, links to readings, assignment descriptions, and an embedded Google Drive for draft sharing.
I primarily offer feedback on student writing digitally, using the comment features on Canvas, Google Drive, or Microsoft Word. Examples of my in-text feedback to students can be found below, shared with my students' permission.
Whether teaching online or in person, I rely on weekly emails and course announcements to help my students stay on track. Samples of my Canvas announcements and class emails can be found in the slideshow below.
