Each year, our Bedford New Scholars advisory board of graduate teaching assistants shares their Assignments that Work — assignments that have proven especially effective, engaging, or innovative in their classrooms. Started in 2018, these assignment ideas together make a valuable resource for those seeking new activity and assignment ideas, and it will grow with each year of the Bedford New Scholars Advisory Board. Here, you can find creative assignments to engage students in writing and address teaching challenges.
