Sutton's Rule for Writing Centers
MetadataShow full item record
On many days, writing centers are wonderlands of collaborative discovery and rich reading and writing of texts. Occasionally, however, the scene is different: Demanding students “tutor hop” for paper fixing rather than learning, inflexible faculty assign the same irrelevant paper 25 years in a row and wonder why tutors don’t keep students from plagiarizing, and the very dean we need to “get it” continues to ask for a report that no one will read. Occasionally, even writing center directors are pretty tough to deal with.
