Professionalizing the Everyday
MetadataShow full item record
When I think of tutors’ professionalization, I inevitably consider the texts I encourage tutors to read — not just tutor training manuals but also the theory and research that shape my understanding of our field. One such text that I’ve recently adopted for a new tutor training course is The Everyday Writing Center: A Community of Practice by Anne Geller, Michele Eodice, Frankie Condon, Meg Carroll and Elizabeth Boquet. Although I find this to be one of the most progressive writing center texts in our scholarly canon, it’s likely not on many tutors’ reading lists because it was written ostensibly for writing center administrators. Despite its title, this book’s insights into writing center leadership are not confined to the everyday nuts and bolts of running a center but are also valuable for tutors.
