Encouraging a visit to the Writing Center is a great way to enrich your students' learning. The Writing Center can also improve your students' performance in your course.
How can I encourage my students to visit the Writing Center? Many students who visit the Writing Center have been encouraged by an instructor to do so, and instructors strongly shape their students' views of the Writing Center. To encourage your students to visit the Writing Center, try some or all of the following:
Located on the Roosevelt Hall's 4th floor, the Writing Center offers one-to-one tutoring appointments, group appointments, drop-in tutorials, and resources for writers. Our tutors can help student writers understand assignments, conduct research, and learn proofreading strategies. If possible, call ahead for an appointment: 401-874-2367. Drop-in tutorials are often available. For more information, visit the Writing Center's Web site at http://www.uri.edu/artsci/writing/center/.
Will my students find help at the Writing Center? At the Writing Center, we work with students in many kinds of courses, at many levels, and in many different disciplines. To ensure your students get the help they need, tell us about your students' writing projects. Send project or assignment descriptions to the Writing Center, or write for a conversation about the writing you assign in your courses.
