Getting Back to Basics
MetadataShow full item record
One of the challenges of working with students across a college campus is achieving consistency with instruction. Student writers learn varied methods for revision and receive different (and often ineffective) kinds of feedback on their writing. When peer tutors work with these writers, they often have to start with the basics and teach them how to edit and revise. They have to show them what tools exist to help them become independent writers. One of the ways that tutors bridge the gap between what students learn in the classroom and what they learn in the writing center is through their use of a writing handbook.
