Resources for History T.A.s

The following links lead to a number of sites that History T.A.s may find useful:

Information on Academic Honesty & Plagiarism.

Note too that the History Department has adopted Mary Lynn Rampolla’s A Pocket Guide to Writing in History (Bedford/St. Martin's Press) for use in all classes. History T.A.s should familiarize themselves with this text so that they know what is expected of students.

Our colleagues at the Gwenna Moss Centre for Teaching Effectiveness (GMTCE) offer a wealth of real-world and online resources for instructors. All TAs should familiarize themselves with the Centre's website.

An excellent site for advice on essay marking is provided by the Writing Program at Dartmouth College. The section "Diagnosing and Responding to Student Writing" is especially valuable.
