Request Group Writing Tutorials

Course-Based Writing Support

Would you like to receive better written assignments from your students? Then consider signing up for Writing Across the Curriculum’s group writing tutorials program! We offer in-class lectures and workshops to both graduate and undergraduate classes, and small group writing tutorials specifically designed around your discipline’s writing conventions and the specifics of your writing assignment(s). 

The program is free: there is no charge to your department and no costs to your students.

What we provide: 

  • A 30 – 50 minute in-class introduction to your writing  assignments.
  • 2 – 3 optional, small group tutorials, for up to 12 students  per session. 

What we need from you: 

  • Up to one hour of class time to review the assignment(s)  with your students, and talk to them about effective,  discipline specific writing strategies. 
  • The course syllabus, assignment description, and any  ancillary material (marking rubrics, scoring guides,  sample assignments, and the like).
