effective conferencing on students' papers

From Ben Opipari comes a list of sources for legal writing professors who want to increase their skill at holding effective student conferences:

  • Thomas Flynn & Mary King, Dynamics of the Writing Conference: Social and Cognitive Interaction (NCTE 1999).
  • Muriel Harris, Teaching One-to-One: The Writing Conference (NCTE 1986).
  • Donald A. McAndrew & Thomas J. Reigstad, Tutoring Writing: A Practical Guide for Conferences (Boynton/Cook, 2001).
  • Emily Meyer & Louise Z. Smith, The Practical Tutor (Oxford Univ. Press 1987).
  • Beth S. Newman, Teaching Students to Write (2d ed., Oxford Univ. Press 1995).

This last source in particular was singled out for its excellence both for theory and practical tips.

There are many more sources, of course! This is what I recall having on my bookshelf in my office. If I find others, I will update.
