Fall 2013 Writing Across the Curriculum Brown Bag Series
Encourage Your Students to visit the Center for Writing Excellence
Information about the CWE you can include on your syllabus:
The Center for Writing Excellence is a free service offering individual writing support for all UWEC students, staff, and faculty at any stage of any writing project. Depending on where you are in your writing process when you visit the CWE and what your major concerns are, a session might involve deciding how to approach a particular assignment, identifying a thesis and sculpting a rough outline, reading a rough draft to check for general coherence and clarity, incorporating new material into a revision, addressing problems of grammar and sentence structure, learning how to cite sources properly – or any of a myriad of other questions about writing. As you get ready for a visit to the CWE:
The CWE is located on the second floor of McIntyre Library, and it is open Monday through Thursdays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Fridays 9 a.m. to noon. We also offer drop-in sessions in Towers and Sutherland between 5-8 p.m. Visit the CWE site at www.uwec.edu/Writing for more information or to make an appointment.
- Bring a written copy of the assignment
- Know your instructor's expectations for writing in your discipline
- Know the name of citation style you need to use, if applicable
- Bring any previous feedback that you have received
- Think about what you want to address in your session, as this will focus your writing efforts and get the process of self-reflection started, which is an instrumental part of the writing process.
Recommend your most talented students to take ENGL 397, Tutoring Academic Writing, so that they can work as paid tutors in the Center for Writing Excellence.
