Question: What do students respond to when given writing assignments?
Answer: “Found that students’ responses to assignments depended on what they were actually rewarded for producing.” J Nelson. 1990. P. 241.
Comment: Makes sense. Should lead to more careful analysis of writing assignments before they are given. Have students construct rubrics consisting of expectations. RayS.
