Teaching Writing in the Disciplines is a one-credit theory and practice course for GSIs serving as instructors and graders of undergraduate courses that meet the Upper-Level Writing Requirement at the University of Michigan. This course is mandatory for GSIs working in these courses but may be elected with permission by other GSIs interested in the course. In this course students develop strategies for effectively teaching academic writing to upper-level undergraduate students. Our topics cover grading and responding to student writing, addressing linguistic diversity in student writing, dealing with issues of academic honesty, and guiding students through the writing process, from topic generation to revision.
