My girlfriend works as a school teacher, and as she takes a long time in correcting compositions I want to ask a question about homeworks correction. Is there any appropriate network/site here on Stack Exchange?

Area51 has a site in definition, but I'm not aware of any active teacher-oriented stacks. area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/33114/education-technology –  CodeGnome Jan 12 '13 at 20:34
    
Is it a question specific to any academic subject or just about the process in general? –  jonsca Jan 12 '13 at 20:58
    
@jonsca not really to any subject. Just the ones who require the pupil to make a composition in their native language. –  Daniele B Jan 12 '13 at 21:06
    
Well, there is a writing site, but you'd have to check their faq as to whether techniques for critiquing would be on topic there. –  jonsca Jan 12 '13 at 21:21

Writers might consider this on-topic, depending on how the question is formatted:

  • If it's about redlining a student essay and the issues involved with doing that, it's essentially an editing question, which would be on-topic. If it's about presenting constructive criticism and encouraging good writing habits, that would also be on-topic.

  • If it's about grading, or student interaction, or setting up assignments, that would be closed as off-topic.

Also, feel free to ask about this on our Meta site if you're not sure of how to format the question. –  Neil Fein Jan 12 '13 at 21:56
    
Neil, thanks. You refer to writer meta, isn't it? I also submitted it to personal productioviti on SE productivity.stackexchange.com/questions/5098/… it seems it is a good place. Do you think submitting it also to writers, with a different format, is a good idea? –  Daniele B Jan 13 '13 at 9:53
    
By the way, as I surprisingly noticed that no networks for undergraduate teachers where availabe on SE, I just proposed one area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/49571/teachers-school –  Daniele B Jan 13 '13 at 11:10
    
@DanieleB - "Do you think submitting it also to writers, with a different format, is a good idea?" - Only if there are aspects of the question that the existing question you posted isn't covering that you think Writers can cover well. Also, yes, I meant Writers meta. –  Neil Fein Jan 13 '13 at 17:21

The only suitable place I found to make this question was the Personal Productivity site, where I asked this: How to spend less time in compositions correction? which seems to get some answers.

In any case as I saw there was no ntwork for undergraduate schools, I opened this site proposal: Undergraduates
