Assessment
and Goals
:

Goals: to introduce students to writing/composition pedagogy and theory in the context of a writing center. Assessment: student learning will be assessed through observations of tutoring sessions and through a writing assignment reflecting on tutoring experience and drawing on selected readings in composition theory.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

ALLOWS STUDENTS THE OPPORTUNITY TO GAIN VALUABLE LEARNING AND PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE WHILE EARNING CREDIT. MANY STUDENTS, AFTER TAKING EITHER GRAMMAR AND LANGUAGE OR ADVANCED EXPOSITORY WRITING, SEEK THIS KIND OF TUTORING EXPERIENCE TO HELP SOLIDIFY WHAT THEY HAVE LEARNED IN THE CLASSROOM AND TO IMPROVE THEIR OWN WRITING. SUCH TEACHING EXPERIENCE WILL ALSO PROVIDE IMPORTANT PREPARATION FOR STUDENTS WISHING TO GO ON TO GRADUATE SCHOOL OR TEACHING. SOME QUALIFIED STUDENTS WHO WISH TO WORK IN THE WRITING ROOM ARE NOT WORK-STUDY ELIGIBLE, AND THIS COURSE WOULD ALLOW THEM TO DO SO.
