We often learn about writing
best from looking at each other's writing, both to identify those
aspects of papers that are going well and those that need work.
For this class, I will from time to time want to excerpt a bit
from a student assignment or paper and use that excerpt as an example
that we can work through as a class or in small groups. In addition,
I might want to use a paper or section of a paper as an example
in a different or future class, or the Writing Program might want
to borrow it for training or for use on its website for instructors.
This form gives me your permission to do so.
If a paper or a section of a paper is used, names will blanked
out and identifying marks will be removed, so no one will know
wrote the paper (or the sentence, paragraph, etc.) unless you tell
them that you did.
I do not want to use papers without your permission, and I know that
having your papers or parts of them used might sound daunting. However,
it will do a great deal for you and for the other students in this
class and in other classes. Without the opportunity to use student
work as an example of both common problems and common successes,
the teaching of writing becomes far more difficult.
I do___ / I do not ___ give my permission to have my work used in
this class and in other classes for the purpose of teaching.
