WSC 101 - Practicum in Writing Center PedagogySemester Hours: 4
Students will study the issues and methods of writing center pedagogy through researching the history of writing centers in postsecondary American education and studying landmark works in composition theory. Students will also observe and participate in writing tutorials at the Hofstra Writing Center. Engagement with a variety of writing center resources – scholarly articles, blogs, archival materials, tutoring handbooks – will culminate in a research project. Frequent written and oral reflection, as well as small-group work, will be central to the course. Students who complete this course may be eligible to work as Hofstra Writing Center consultants.
