For a few years now, but ESPECIALLY codified this semester, I allow students Revise & Resubmit options on essay writing assignments- I give substantive writing feedback, grade accurately, and let them know they can R&R and/or apply the feedback to subsequent assignments... (1/N)
Yes, it's a substantial amount of work for me BUT since some of the same issues come up a lot, I have a bank of "pro-tips" I can pull from- so I am not LINE-EDITING their essays, so much as highlighting examples & giving them broadly applicable pro-tips... (2/N)
Common themes of feedback:
1) Identifying & prioritizing recent, scholarly sources (differentiating primary, secondary, tertiary sources and when & how to use them).
2) Weaving citations together WITHIN paragraphs.

Finally dug into the details of the California teacher who was a Typhoid Mary to her students...
I'll just quote from the CDC report (cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/7…)

The teacher became symptomatic on May 19, but continued to work for 2 days before receiving a test on May 21.
"during this time <of active COVID symptoms>, the <unvaccinated> teacher read aloud unmasked to the class despite school requirements to mask while indoors."

Let's talk about the ways that humans socially learn, bc without that context it may be hard to understand how we got to the "folks taking livestock medication & shitting themselves in public" situation (🧵)
As humans, our adaptive cognitive architecture for social learning is <chef's kiss>

(also, y'all should go ahead & follow Prof @MichelleAKline bc she is really in the know about all this)
From an individual perspective, learning things through "trial & error" or "guess & check" is fraught with pitfalls. At BEST it can take a LOT of time, limiting how much a person can learn in lifetime...
