 3/30/11 Why we chose this method We are advocating this method because we feel it will  promote involvement of individual students in the  proofreading/editing stage of their work and may  hold students’ attention longer than a lecture. Many students are already writing their papers on  the computer, so the use of technology in this lesson  plan may make proofreading appear more relevant to  them. (This method is just one of many possible ways to         approach the task of student revision processes.)

 3/30/11 What is it and how Do you do it? Minimal Marking
Background image of page 8
 3/30/11 Richard H. Haswell “Minimal Marking”  Haswell is responding to Knoblauch and Brannon’s  research (1981) which claims teacher’s written  corrections are ineffective in improving students’  grammar. Knoblauch and Brannon propose that effective  pedagogy “1) facilitates rather than judges, 2)  emphasizes performance rather than finished  product, 3) provides double feedback, before and  after revision, and 4) helps bridge successive drafts  by requiring immediate revision” (600).
