Writing Center consultants are available not only to assist your students with their individual writing concerns, but they also work one-on-one with instructors to help them integrate writing instruction into their classrooms. One of their services to instructors is assistance in focusing evaluative comments. While the Writing Center offers general strategies such as those presented in this tutorial and in seminars and workshops, we recognize that general remarks might not prepare instructors for every question they will encounter as they comment on student papers. Particularly when applying these general concepts to early batches of papers, it can be helpful for instructors to work with someone as they walk through the process. To schedule an individual Writing Center consultation for this or another purpose, please e-mail Associate Professor of English and Writing Center Director Sarah Sloane at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Writing Center at (970) 491-0222.
