The Writing Program supports writing at CC through motivating campus-wide conversations around writing, collaborating with the Crown Faculty Center to provide support for writing pedagogies and the evaluation of student writing, and administering the writing requirement at CC.
Regular Writing Center support offerings
Classroom/Writing Center Visits
A member of our staff would be happy to stop by your classroom for a quick introduction to the Writing Center and what we can do for students. Alternatively, we’d love for your class to come visit us in Tutt Library, so students can see where we are located. We offer two options: 1) a simple introduction that takes 5-10 minutes, or 2) a ~45 minute introduction combined with a short discussion about writing on the block, addressing student concerns and strategies for success. To schedule a class visit, please contact Chris Schacht at firstname.lastname@example.org
Writing Center staff lead student workshops every block, covering topics from reading skills, brainstorming, and drafting, all the way to leading peer review sessions. These workshops are tailored specifically to the course, and so require communication with faculty and time for preparation. To schedule a workshop, please contact Chris Schacht at email@example.com
Assignment Design and Course Pacing
As course instructors, we understand the difficulty in creating writing assignments. An assignment must set clear expectations for students, while also challenging them to advance their rhetorical and critical thinking skills. We offer strategies for writing assignments that include scaffolding, rubric design, and pacing the assignment within the block so that students have opportunities to engage in the writing process. To discuss assignments and syllabi, please contact Kat Bell at firstname.lastname@example.org
Besides assignments, staff are available for consultations on other faculty/staff writing, including but not limited to article drafts, book chapters, and grants. Similarly, since our staff has experience with publishing and grant writing, we can offer help with addressing feedback from editors and grant reviewers. To find out more or schedule a consultation, please contact Kat Bell email@example.com, Chris Schacht firstname.lastname@example.org or Roy Jo Sartin email@example.com
