The Writing Center Presents: Cultivating Voice Spring 2015!

Students interested in becoming a peer tutor at the Writing Center are required to take a two-credit course, Cultivating Voice: A Writing Tutor's Craft, offered every Spring. Students interested in taking this course are strongly encouraged to attend our Winter Quarter info-session, where you'll get a taste of what the class entails, have the opportunity to ask questions, and receive your application to apply for the class.

Cultivating Voice combines readings, reflective writing, seminar, and a practicum to prepare students to become peer tutors in the Writing Centers. In seminar, students explore tutoring theories, examine the role of a peer tutor and develop effective tutoring practices. In the practicum, students will observe peer tutoring and graduate to supervised tutoring. The course also will address racial and social justice in serving and working with a diverse group. Students considering graduate school in related fields like education, creative writing, and literature will benefit from this training. Please refer to the Academic Catalog for the current academic year for more information. 

Whether or not you are able to attend the info session, you can download Cultivating Voice Spring 2015 application form here (pdf)
