Read Gillespie and Lerner, chap. 8 “Reading in the Writing Center” and post journal #6 What are you noticing about your tutees’ reading strategies? What is the relationship between their reading and drafting? Which strategies have you tried out or will you try out why? Take a look at the examples starting on p. 109—have you experienced any of these?
Journal # 5: What’s on your mind as we move into week 5? Fellows-led discussion for next class.
Post your reflection on the mock-tutoring session, journal # 4.
Journal # 3: What really sticks with you about these Chapter 6—what will you take into a tutoring session?
For journal # 2, write a more holistic comment about the essay: What do you see as being its strengths? Where does it need work? What strategies do you think would be helpful to stimulate revision?
For your Journal # 1 compare the strategies Gillespie and Lerner list to your own. In your response, roughly 400-500 words, consider the following prompts: What strategies could you add to theirs and share with your fellow Fellows? Under what writing situations or conditions have they been helpful? Similarly, which specific writing challenges do they help you address? What really sticks with you about these 2 chapters—what will you take into a tutoring session?
