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.

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.

At least 66 dead, dozens injured

TLAHUELILPAN, Mexico — Forensic experts attempted to separate and count charred heaps of corpses in central Mexico on Saturday after a massive fireball erupted at an illegal pipeline tap, killing at least 66 people. More than 85 other people on Saturday were listed as missing as relatives of the deceased and onlookers gathered around the scene of carnage. Just a few feet from where the pipeline passed through an alfalfa field, the dead seem to have fallen in heaps, perhaps as they stumbled over each other or tried to help one another in the moments after a geyser of gasoline

Thursday, BuzzFeed reported that President Trump had ordered Michael Cohen to lie to Congress. Friday, at a late hour (after a day of misinformation), Robert Mueller had his office refute the details of the report and its implications. This is a rare event by the special counsel office. Those on the right see this as further evidence of "fake news," and the left argues that this proves how fair Mueller will be. We must wonder how this story originated. BuzzFeed editor Ben Smith is still claiming that the story is accurate and wants Mueller to clarify his denial. Watching the

The federal government shutdown has presented a unique opportunity for President Donald Trump to clear out the deadwood in the federal bureaucracy, saving U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars in salaries, perks, and rented office space for people who aren´t doing anything productive. At the same time, Trump can get rid of dozens, possibly even hundreds of Deep State operatives in the government, handpicked by Barack Obama and Bill Clinton for their loyalty to the Democratic Party, not their country or the law.

President Trump on Thursday abruptly denied military aircraft to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a foreign trip just minutes before the congressional delegation was set to depart, in a stunning response to her call to delay the State of the Union address amid the government shutdown. In a curt letter, Trump said her trip has been “postponed.” “Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed. We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over. In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay,

Trump told her to fly commercial on her own dime.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) looked defeated Friday afternoon when reporters confronted her over her outrageous claims Trump endangered her life by cancelling her military flight then allegedly leaked her commercial travel plans. Earlier Friday morning, Pelosi’s spokesman, Drew Hammill accused President Trump of endangering Pelosi’s life by leaking her commercial travel plans. Nancy Pelosi doubled down on those claims when confronted by reporters. “We had the prerogative to travel commercially, and we made plans to do that, until the administration then leaked that we were traveling commercially,” Pelosi told a gaggle of reporters.

Gillette is doubling down on a controversial new campaign that appears aimed at taking on so-called toxic masculinity — but has created a social media firestorm. The two-minute video from Boston-based razor brand Gillette urges men to act against sexual harassment, misogyny and bullying, asking: “Is this the best a man can get?” While fans are applauding the move, critics say it assumes men need to be steered away from negative tendencies. The ad starts off with audio of news about the #MeToo movement, saying, “We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews joined the chorus of pundits losing their minds over President Donald Trump cancelling Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Afghanistan — but admitted that the president made the Democrats “look like fools.” President Trump had hilariously cancelled the trip as the Democrats were in a bus on their way to the flight. (Photo) “Let’s talk about the cheap shot part of it. They were in the bus heading to Joint Base Edward — Andrews. He made them look like fools sitting in the capitol at the driveway basically trying to figure out what’s coming next. He caught them in

The federal government shutdown has presented a unique opportunity for President Donald Trump to clear out the deadwood in the federal bureaucracy, saving U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars in salaries, perks, and rented office space for people who aren´t doing anything productive. At the same time, Trump can get rid of dozens, possibly even hundreds of Deep State operatives in the government, handpicked by Barack Obama and Bill Clinton for their loyalty to the Democratic Party, not their country or the law. These people leak like a screen door in a submarine, mainly to CNN and MSNBC, the twin headquarters

Deep State: We´ve been saying for some time now that the entire investigation of Donald Trump for "colluding" with the Russians smelled like Deep State sabotage. Now, former associate Attorney General Bruce Ohr has confirmed that´s true. If so, these are criminal acts. The only question is, what do we do now? Both the Justice Department and FBI have maintained they didn´t really know that Trump Dossier compiler Christopher Steele had any bias at all against Trump. And, even when they got their hands on Steele´s unverified dossier on Trump, they claim they didn´t know that S

Vox dubbed her “the most buzzed-about first-term member of the House of Representatives,” and The Atlantic credited her with an “unusually transparent approach to public relations.” She’s a former Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer and a self-styled democratic socialist. Despite all the fanfare, her recent “60 Minutes” interview with Anderson Cooper shined a bright spotlight on a painful fact: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will make it harder for young women in politics to be taken seriously in the future. In mere minutes, Ocasio-Cortez managed to affirm nearly every negative stereotype about the female sex,
