ENGH 349 - Writing across the Curriculum and Peer-to-Peer Mentoring: Theory and Practice

1-4 credits
This course introduces students to writing and tutoring theory and pedagogy, with a focus on writing in various disciplines and genres. Topics include the writing process, audience, and purpose; language acquisition and writing-based learning disabilities; writing in a non-native language; multimodal writing; collaborative writing; revision and editing; and discipline-specific discourse and practices, such as citation. Discussion focuses on the role of the course-embedded writing Fellow, including issues of authority, expertise, facilitated peer review, and working one-on-one. The course combines readings and discussion with a practicum that allows student to directly engage and interrogate the ideas and pedagogies they encounter. A significant portion of the course involves working directly with writers from a variety of disciplines. May repeat for credit.
