Question: What messages are being given to students through their teachers’ responses to their writing?
Answer: “A three-year study of the responses instructors make to the writing of students shows that potentially different messages are being sent in the course structure and the evaluative priorities in reading students’ papers.” CR Kline, Jr. 1976. P. 292.
Comment: What messages was I sending in my comments on student’s writing? I think I was trying to persuade students to use standard English. I think my students felt that that style was unrealistic. RayS.
