ISU's Eng. 101 Grading Standards (shared by request)

Attached please find a copy of grading standards for single units in "Composition as Critical Inquiry" (Eng. 101), the introductory composition course in Illinois State University's Writing Program.

Several participants in today's (Fri. 7/13) WPA 2007 conference session C.4 ("Readiness...") requested that I share these. I hope you find them helpful.

Thanks to Marvin Diogenes for his presentation, and thanks to all those who attended our session.
