All writers benefit from sharing and discussing their work with knowledgeable, interested readers. This course provides such an opportunity, pairing each student writer with a peer tutor from the Writing Studio for weekly one-on-one writing sessions. With the peer tutor's support, the student writer works on planning, drafting, revising, and editing papers assigned for other classes. Some students bring creative writing. Some use the sessions as check-ins during long research projects, bringing notes, insights, outlines, questions, and drafts. The Writing Studio director oversees the course. Grading is based on participation and a portfolio of work completed for other classes and worked on with the peer tutor.This course may be repeated for a second single credit as WRI 2060.Students are evaluated on a Pass/Fail basis.
- Group option: This semester we also have a small group option each term. If you choose this option for one or both terms, instead of 1:1 sessions, you will meet with two writing assistants and a small group of peers, with people taking turns bringing work and responding in the group. Each week, you will either prepare to bring your own work for critique, or you will be reading others’ work and preparing feedback for others in the group.
