Interested in Becoming a Peer Writing Assistant?
Peer writing assistants are at the heart of the SCW’s work. Through providing support for student writers, peer writing assistants are themselves enriched and challenged. Teaching writing prompts assistants and teachers alike to hone writing strategies, to refine their language for talking about writing, and to think differently about their own writing processes. Writing tutors from colleges and universities across the country--and the world--find this to be deeply rewarding work.
成为同行写作助理, interested students will take a course, Tutoring Writing: Theory and Practice (WRT 285, offered Spring 2018) that will prepare them to work with writers in the SCW. In this course as well as in ongoing education and professional development, peer writing assistants will develop and refine knowledge of theories of writing, 写作中心理论与教学, writing processes and writing strategies, and rhetorical and genre knowledge for writing in different disciplines and contexts. While peer writing assistants may have more first-hand knowledge of writing for the discipline of their major(s) and/or minor, they will also have the rhetorical and genre knowledge to help students with writing projects from across campus.
