SWC 300 — Seminar in Peer Tutoring
Section 001, SEM

FA 2007
Credits: 3
Reqs: ULWR

This seminar aims to help students to become theoretically informed and well-practiced peer tutors. During the process, 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; and writing extensively, from short explorations (e.g., daily reading logs) to lengthy exposition (e.g., seminar papers). Many activities are grounded in hands-on practical experience rather than in theory. This course will provide opportunities to learn by doing, by serving others, and by trying out theories, with the goal of students defining their own tutoring style and developing their own theory of practice. Registration is by permission only.
