This seminar aims to help students become theoretically informed and well-practiced peer tutors. Students learn about writing, teaching, community service, cultural differences, and literacy practices. Activities and experiences include: reading and critiquing peer tutoring pedagogy; examining student papers and conferences together in class; writing extensively, from short explorations (e.g., daily reading logs) to lengthy exposition (e.g., seminar papers); workshopping each other's papers; conferencing with the instructor; observing OWL Tutorials; observing SWC 301 students in the Peer Tutoring Center and Sweetland faculty during Writing Workshop; practicing peer tutoring onsite and online; and sharing (online and off) our experiences as writers and tutors.
