A little inspiration

One of my students shared a tip and I thought it was inspired!

This particular student takes advantage of university resources, like the writing center.  If you have an in-person appointment at our writing center the consultants will ask you to read your paper aloud and the consultant will make suggestions.  I’m familiar with this method because this was the same pedagogy employed by my writing center at SCSU.  Well, the student was working on their rough draft for a paper and wanted someone else to read it but didn’t have someone to just sit with him as he typed.  So, how to solve this problem? The student cut and pasted sections of his paper into Google Translate and let the program read his writing back to him!  I thought this was such a clever trick and is something that ELL and non-ELL students could implement.  Its simple, easy to use, and easy to replicate.

I love it when students share their brilliant ideas!
