(Re)Shapping a Curriculum-Based Tutor Preparation Seminar: A Course Design Proposal
MetadataShow full item record
In Candace Spigelman and Laurie Grobman's collection On Location: Theory and Practice in ClassroomBased Writing Tutoring (2005), the phrase “on location” is borrowed from film production and is aptly applied to writing tutors working within classrooms. As Spigelman and Grobman point out, the metaphor parallels “shooting on location” with the dynamic nature of classroom-based writing tutoring. Students, tutors, and faculty members create a different collaborative ethos than those formed in writing centers, and these differences between the philosophy of the writing center and the site of the classroom should necessarily be reflected in the training of course-embedded tutors.
