Directed Peer Tutoring
This course provides students who have been trained in WRITING 300 with the opportunity to tutor in a supportive environment. Students sign up for one to three credits for which they tutor two to four hours per week and attend a weekly one-hour meeting. In the weekly meeting, students share questions about difficult or unusual tutoring sessions, get feedback and advice from their peers and the instructor, review their student evaluations for the week, and discuss how tutoring can run more smoothly. It is also used for further professional development carried out through reading and writing assignments and projects.
