The Favors Glossary
Favors Writing Management writes and develops online academic resources on the subjects of English, composition, and revision techniques.
At FWM, senior editors are in the process of converting the glossary of the current textbook Revision Today into an online medium.
Additional plans include developing user guides, training materials, and workbooks delivered through a blog and The Regina Y. Favors Learning Center site (Coming soon!).
The Favors Glossary is a list of popular feedback comments professors write within the margins of student essays.
The glossary grows from a primary concern for college students who struggle with the process of revising academic papers. It serves as a comprehensive solution to bridge the communication gap between English professors and students of writing and research papers.
It answers the question, “What does my professor mean by this?”
The mission of the glossary is the following:
- To provide the definitions of common margin comments English professors use as grading tools
- To serve as an online resource for both English professors and for students
- To suggest and design practical methods for teaching revision
- To start a national dialogue where students can “add” comments professors have used to grade their papers.
The Favors Glossary functions as an online teaching blog.
The glossary is currently available for view here.
Current Status: In Current Development
