Practicum students develop writing skills that allow them to take full advantage of their experiences in courses at the University. Practicum is designed to support students who have limited experience with the kinds of writing most often assigned and valued at the University. Students will gain practice and experience in:

  1. writing as a process of drafting and revising;
  2. reading and writing analytically;
  3. developing a writer's voice, which includes distinguishing between their ideas and those of others;
  4. studying models of writing of the kind they are expected to produce in college;
  5. using the computer to draft and revise papers and to talk about writing; and
  6. attending to grammar and mechanics.

Classes meet two hours per week. Each student receives an additional half-hour of individual instruction every other week in a conference with the instructor. Practicum is not graded but does earn two credits. Class enrollment is limited to 18 students.

Instructor(s):

Prerequisites & Distribution: Permission of instructor. (3). (Excl). May not be repeated for credit.

Upper-Level Writing

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

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). Most of these activities are grounded in hands-on practical experience rather than theory. This course will provide opportunities to learn by doing, by serving others, and by getting out there and trying out the theories, with the goal of students defining their own tutoring style and developing their own theory of practice. Registration is by permission only. Contact the Sweetland Writing Center.
