This is the second part of a two-part workshop, started in May, on supporting students’ writing in your First-Year Seminar (FYS). (Participants need not have attended the May workshop to benefit from this one!) Drawing on research and best practices in writing studies, this workshop will offer tools for FYS instructors to plan for their writing assignments and feedback strategies for a new or existing FYS.
Specific questions we'll consider in this workshop:
The workshop is designed for you-whether you are new to FYS, putting together a new course, or a veteran instructor looking to refine your practices. Participants will receive a copy of Nancy Sommers’ book, Responding to Student Writers. Participants are encouraged to bring drafts of their FYS syllabus and assignment descriptions, as time will be allotted to share and workshop ideas.
This workshop is offered by the Writing Program of Wake Forest University.
