Learning Communities/RW 199

Students can bring paper drafts to tutorials. However, there are many other writing and research tasks that are appropriate for a WC tutorial. We can assist you with:

  • Understanding an assignment
  • Finding scholarly sources (using appropriate search engines)
  • Comprehending scholarly sources
  • Navigating library resources
  • Brainstorming
  • Outlining
  • Forming a thesis
  • Generating topic sentences
  • Writing organized and coherent summaries/responses/papers
  • Using MLA/APA/Chicago Style citations
  • Creating bibliographies/annotated bibliographies
  • Revising
  • Editing
  • Checking for correct grammar
  • Revising papers for final portfolios
  • Writing cover letters for final portfolios

Note: You may bring writing tasks from any of your current classes, not just ENGL 101 or RW 199.

Note: Two or more of these tasks may be combined in order to ensure that the tutorial makes full use of the thirty-minute time slot.
