American University Tells Faculty to Disregard
‘Quality’ of Writing When Grading

Breitbart Tech, by Tom Ciccotta

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/11/2019 2:49:46 PM

A seminar at American University in February will instruct faculty members to disregard a student’s “quality” of writing when grading their papers. According to a report from The College Fix, an upcoming seminar at American University will ask professors to disregard a student’s “quality” of writing when grading their assignments. The seminar, which will be conducted by University of Washington-Tacoma Professor Asao Inoue, will include a variety of lectures that will encourage professors to disregard the quality of writing from students. One event will encourage professors to recognize “white language supremacy” is perpetuated by standard grading practices. This plenary will

These colleges admit transparently unqualified attendees ( not students) under affirmative action, then have to downgrade curricula and the grading system to let them get through. Then if one points out those facts and questions the abilities of the AA beneficiaries he is, of course, a racist.

$48,259 tuition. For that, you can write pure pap and get an A+, but you may not learn to write well. What a waste of money that is.

It would seem to me if I were still hiring employees for my company and this sort of information would have been made public at that time, I would simply have given every prospective employee a required written description of their last year in college along with an outline of what they expect to accomplish during their employment with my company.

That would settle the matter of my concerns about that employee writing a letter to our customers. I believe that will soon become mandatory in all screeners processing.

Oh, goody.
A degree from AU certifies that you are illiterate.
What could possibly go wrong?
M.A. = Affirmative Action.
Hire this person at your peril.
It is certainly politically correct of AU to do this.
But it sinks the brand just like the German subs sank the Allied shipping in WWII.

If our national language were some African dialect or Papua New Guinean dialect or Spanish or Hindi or other non-European language, we would still need to know how to write well. We would still need to know what good grammar and spelling look like. We would still need to understand at least basic syntax.

In America, we speak ENGLISH. That´s not a white thing. That´s not a European thing. It´s a "fact" thing!

The American University and this lecturer from the University of Washington-Tacoma do a DISSERVICE to students when they do not insist on an adequate mastery of the English language.

People who do not communicate well, by spoken and written means, have a much tougher time excelling in life. It is an abuse of students not to insist on good language skills. Rather than dumb-down the curriculum, we should be helping students learn good language skills.

Excellence is what we should strive for. That is REAL education, not the bull stool that passes for education -- apparently -- at the American University and the University of Washington-Tacoma.

Sometimes students hand me crappy s__t I can’t read. When I point that out, the answer is, “Well, I wrote it, didn’t I?” as if that is all they’re required to do. Whatever happened to striving upward? Now, we’re just sliding down a greased ramp.

So will they close their Writing Center and fire all the staff?

I taught Freshman Comp in grad school years ago, and in the first year, there was a requirement that all freshman have a specific number of documented visits to the WC.

The following year, the freshman could disregard entrance test scores that indicated they needed the prerequisite (remediation) course to FC and just enroll in FC. The course involved a biographical portfolio that involved a whole semester of writes and rewrites. How their portfolios would be graded was spelled out for them. And, they were required to attend sessions with me where I told them specifically how to do what was required to pass the course. You´d be surprised at how many students failed my class. They weren´t just lazy--they could not write.

And, what happened to writing across the curriculum? How can you teach anything without standards? Better yet, why bother? Pretty soon we won´t be able to read anything on the internet without pictures. Marxists are such regressive degenerates.

LOL! Speaking of "standards," what are the standards of a "journalist" who writes the beginning sentence: "A seminar at American University in February will instruct faculty members to disregard a student’s “quality” of writing when grading their papers." "A student," singular. "Their papers," plural. C+ writing, Mr Cicotta, your next assignment is to review your grammar.

Again this White Supremacy B.S. The ability to write the English Language properly is the greatest sign of intelligence in human kind, more than knowing math. I have known people who can write a paper the first time without editing! Mere mortals have to do rewrites, maybe once, maybe twice. I´m in the once or twice category. It depends on my state of alertness that day. It took me a long time to realize that I was disorganized in my thoughts and wrote boring prose. You have to work at varying phrases and opening words of sentences and varying the placing of subjects and verbs and lengths of sentences. Nothing shows ignorance more than the poorly written word.
No boss or high level executive is going to accept "ebonics" in the work place. It will mark that person as stupid, and why the heck was he or she (got to be PC here)hired in the first place! Putting down a well written word demonstrates the thinking process and it can´t be ignored. Maybe one can cut slack for the foreign born individual, but in the end, someone will have to edit that person´s work.
This is a very bad move by American University and it will do more harm than good.

Last year, I was assessing practical reports belonging to first year university students. The scoring guide given to me by the unit coordinator stated that only 10% of the total mark for each report was for quality of writing (grammar etc). Some of the reports were appallingly written but still passed according to the rules of the guide. It´s almost impossible to fail a student who submits a report.

Some of the lesser universities are passing students who don´t deserve to pass because funding of these universities is based on pass rates. It´s a corrupted system.

More details, from a link in the article.

Who knew? America is guilty of "white language supremacy."


This plenary will argue against the use of conventional standards in college courses that grade student writing by single standards. Inoue will discuss the ways that White language supremacy is perpetuated in college classrooms despite the better intentions of faculty, particularly through the practices of grading writing.

The corrupt Mueller team indicted 37 individuals and 3 companies, with more than 4 out of 5 of the indicted individuals related to Russians who may not even be real and probably had nothing to do with our 2016 election. Dirty cop Robert Mueller and his team of conflicted liberal attorneys and investigators saw their unconstitutional witch hunt fall apart. It seems like on a daily basis more and more information becomes available of the entire gang’s unlawful acts. In spite of this, they charged forward working with their mainstream media (MSM) to report their unlawful and phony leaks planned

MSNBC host Chris Matthews expressed outrage on Friday upon hearing reports that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had completed his Russia investigation and submitted it to the attorney general -- with further indictments not expected. Matthews began his show by summarizing the breaking news, but stressed that Mueller handed his report to the Department of Justice “without ever directly interviewing the president of the United States.” (Video) “That means no charges against the president, his children or his associates after all those meetings with the Russians,” a visibly upset Matthews told his viewers.

First of all, of course everyone should wait to see the contents of the actual Mueller report before drawing any specific final conclusions about it. But here are some laws of nature in the modern age: If that report contained a fraction of the damaging material breathlessly awaited in the media culture for two years, there would be some smoke signal of it. Instead, we saw an actual finding from the Justice Department that there would be no further indictments from the probe. No indictment of Trump. No indictment of anyone associated with the campaign or the administration to support

US President Donald Trump abruptly fired Comey in 2017, triggering a series of events that led to Mueller being named to investigate allegations that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election and that the Trump campaign colluded in that effort. ´I have no idea whether the special counsel will conclude that Mr. Trump knowingly conspired with the Russians in

Former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile was full of posthumous praise for the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Wednesday’s edition of Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier. The context was President Trump’s renewed criticism of McCain after a newly-released deposition showed how deeply McCain was involved in the fraudulent “Russia dossier” that has been used to attack the administration and divide the nation. Brazile, who Fox News recently hired as a contributor, began by criticizing the president for speaking ill of the dead. She then continued: “John McCain leaves a legacy. He leaves a legacy of

The commandant of the Marines has warned the Pentagon that deployments to the southwest border and funding transfers under the president’s emergency declaration, among other unexpected demands, have posed “unacceptable risk to Marine Corps combat readiness and solvency.” In two internal memos, Marine Corps Gen. Robert Neller said the “unplanned/unbudgeted” deployment along the border that President Trump ordered last fall, and shifts of other funds to support border security, had forced him to cancel or reduce planned military training in at least five countries, and delay urgent repairs at bases.(Snip) Neller, a four-star general, said because of the

The apparent scoop du jour is that ex-VP Joe Biden is set to announce his bid with his running mate already picked out: former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Suggestions for his VP thus far have been a who’s-who of the current field of competition for the nomination, including Harris and O’Rourke. Abrams possibly becoming The Chosen One is somewhat surprising, because her star has only so recently begun its ascendency — but not too surprising, because of her fierce intellect, warm demeanor and popularity. Stacey Abrams exudes good sense and kindness, delivered with impeccable poise: that’s the impression most

The Washington National Cathedral disputed President Trump´s claim that he had to "approve" the funeral of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). "Washington National Cathedral was honored to host the funeral service for Senator John McCain. All funerals and memorial services at the Cathedral are organized by the family of the deceased; only a state funeral for a former president involves consultation with government officials," a cathedral spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill on Thursday. "No funeral at the Cathedral requires the approval of the president or any other government official," he added.

A few months ago, Colton Haas and I traveled to the once beautiful city of San Francisco, hoping to have a question answered: What happened to San Francisco? (Video) Erica Sandberg, a community advocate and journalist, broke it down for us: "Right now the major issue — people always call it homelessness — but the major issue is drugs." While San Francisco has always battled homelessness and currently has about 7,000 homeless people, the drug issue is exacerbating the problem. The city currently hands out more than 400,000 syringes each month but only 246,000 are returned, leaving 154,000 syringes left

What’s in a name? Everything for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The New York Democrat blasted Fox News host Laura Ingraham and her guest for mocking how she pronounced her name and saying she does so because it’s a “Latina thing.” “If by ‘the Latina thing,’ she means I actually do the work instead of just talk about it, then yeah, I’m doing ‘the Latina thing,’” she wrote on her Twitter page late Wednesday. “Unless of course she‘s talking about being multilingual, which we know isn’t a ‘Latina thing.’ It’s a ‘21st century’ thing.” Ocasio-Cortez also said that Fox News’

The United States needs to follow these examples and take action to protect Americans from this deadly public health scourge.” She attached a statement to her tweet wherein she noted: Here at home in America, since the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School, we’ve suffered through at least 227 school shootings that killed 143 and left

Former liberal Republican California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger ripped President Donald Trump on Wednesday evening for his “absolutely unacceptable” attacks on the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). “He was just an unbelievable person,” Schwarzenegger told the Atlantic. “So an attack on him is absolutely unacceptable if he’s alive or dead—but even twice as unacceptable since he passed away a few months ago. It doesn’t make any sense whatsoever to do that. I just think it’s a shame that the president lets himself down to that kind of level.
