Writing Fellows Program
The Writing Fellows Program supports the teaching of writing across the curriculum, with a focus on integrating reading and writing pedagogy into discipline-specific classwork and assignments. Writing Fellows:
- Lead in-class workshops on topics related to reading, writing, and speaking.
- Provide support for writing-related classroom activities led by faculty members.
- Consult with faculty members, at their request, on writing and speaking aims, assignments, progressions and process work, and other pedagogical strategies (for both in-person and online teaching).
- Are available by request to consult on assessment, including how/what to mark, focusing feedback, and working with English-language learners and students with learning differences. Writing Fellows will not, however, grade papers or otherwise serve as teaching assistants.
