Primary Instructor:


  Welcome to Writing 300, a course designed to prepare you to serve as peer writing consultants. We have three goals this semester: 1) To introduce you to the practice of consulting about writing (you will receive consultations, observe others consulting, and do some consulting yourselves); 2) To familiarize you with theories about peer consulting in writing, and 3) To address the ULWR goal of engaging with the conventions of disciplinary writing. We will practice composing in several genres of disciplinary writing, as well as creating Canvas Discussion posts that respond to readings and to your own practice. We will address all of our work this term through an equity-based and anti-racist lens, engaging in critical inquiry and self-reflection to develop and maintain a consulting practice founded in DEIJ (diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice) principles. 

Course Requirements:

Grades in this course will be determined by self-assessment. You will present a selection of your work (both formal and informal), ongoing observations about your learning, and an analysis of your work development as evidence of your progress. Then, based on the class’s grade criteria, you will determine your grade for the class.

Intended Audience:

Undergraduate Students who want to serve as peer consultants in the Sweetland Peer Writing Center and have been accepted into the program.

Class Format:

In-person, seminar-style
