Teaching in a Writing Center Seminar/Practicum

The primary purpose of this seminar/practicum is to prepare graduate students and faculty to work in the Writing Center at the University of Iowa and/or other institutions. A secondary purpose is to introduce some important themes in writing studies. Students read articles, books, handouts, and web pages on the following related issues: reading and writing processes, one-on-one conferencing dynamics, second language writing, basic writing, first- and second-year college writing, writing across the curriculum, and writing center administration. Students keep a weekly journal in which they apply course readings to tutoring their own writing center students. An oral report on a case study of a student writer or on a resource for tutoring writing as well as a final written project are required. Meets Tuesdays 3:30–5:30 pm.
