Write More, Grade Less – 16 Techniques

February 28 @ 8:00 am - 1:30 pm

Presenter: Dr. Jay Dugan
Time: Registration – 8:00 to 8:30 | Workshop – 8:30 to 1:30
Cost: $149 (Registration fee includes a continental breakfast)

We all know that students perform better when more writing is added to their lessons…but, oh, the paper grading that follows! When you consider that teachers in the higher grades have as many as 150 students, it all adds up to lost week nights and weekends. This workshop will give participants choices from sixteen different techniques for reducing their time spent grading papers, while increasing the writing skills and achievement rates of their students at the same time.
