Instructor Resource: Course Agnostic Deep Dive Prompts and Rubrics


In the words of our COO and former high school teacher Kelsey Behringer:

"Good teachers borrow, great teachers steal"

Below are 5 writing prompts & rubrics that you can utilize in Packback Deep Dives. Feel free to use this is a final writing assignment or as an extra credit opportunity. Use the prompts and rubrics as-is, or modify as you see fit. You can add resources, add or edit "guiding questions", and/or switch up the AI-assisted and instructor-graded rubric sections. 

The prompts are attached below. The suggested prompts are:

  • "What are your takeaways from this course?" (End of Term Reflection)
  • "Why a career in this field?"
  • "What is a current problem in our field?" (Current problems in this field)
  • "Then and Now: A Comparison Essay" (Current Event)
  • “Research Question”

Reference this article for instructions on how to create a Deep Dives assignment.

You'll be able to grade your students' submissions after the due date.
