    will be assessing on each assignment.
  • Each check list should be an expansion of the
    previous one. One step at a time.
  • Tell them how and what they write really matters.
  • Give each student a chance to do every writing
    assignment a second time in order to correct
    their mistakes.
  • Give each student a list of general writing
    rules.
  • Prepare a poster of these rules for the class.

Why do students do copy/paste tasks and projects?
  • The task/project
  • guidelines are too complicated.
  • expectations (checklist or rubric) arent clear
    to the student.
  • topic is too intellectual in correlation to the
    language level.
  • Ok - sometimes they are just too lazy!! ?

18
So. . .
  • Make sure the project guidelines are VERY clear!
  • Make sure the students understand how he/she will
    be graded.
  • Dont ever accept copy/paste tasks or projects!
  • Make sure there is a correlation between the
