Three days ago, my friend asked for my suggestions to write his essay because he felt unable to finish that assignment. Undoubtedly, writing essay is difficult, so many students often stress out. To help him, I suggested doing these:
While the weekly papers were not graded, the fact that the final papers would be graded provided students a reason to take writing the papers and our comments seriously.
We told the class that the grading criteria needed to promote and measure intellectually valid production for an MBA degree and discriminate between performances.
The first assignment was for students to get themselves into four-person “support” groups, which, by the third week of the term, would be meeting a minimum of two hours a week. The only constraint we put on the groupings was that all matchups were tentative until everyone in the class felt satisfied.
