Call for Applications: Writing Mentor for Writing Intensive Courses
Deadline for Spring Mentor Applications: Thursday, March 21, 2013 at 5 PM.
The Writing Mentors program provides experienced students to help faculty teach writing in specific courses. Applications from faculty are currently being accepted for Fall 2013.
The Writing Mentors program, an initiative sparked by the Portfolio Assessment workshop, encourages the teaching of revision. Faculty who have a Mentor in the classroom must list their course as an “Intensive Writing” course and include revision in the syllabus.
Mentors provide the faculty member feedback on assignments and student learning, an extra hand for student meetings about papers, and assistance to encourage thorough writing processes among the students; the program offers student Mentors valuable experiential learning.
Faculty can find the application for the program at
If you have questions, please consult Director of the Writing Lab Janet Carl or any of the faculty who have or have had Writing Mentors in their classes:
