Description

What happens when supplemental instruction is required as part of a course? This past fall, the English department offered two pilot sections of ENGL 100 and ENGL 110 that featured a dedicated professional tutor. Based on students’ placement exams, the strongest writers placed into ENGL 100 were invited to enroll in a tutor-assisted section of ENGL 110, while the weakest writers were invited into a tutor-assisted section of ENGL 100. In this session, faculty participants will discuss what they learned from the experience of working with struggling writers in a course with a required additional hour of tutoring.
