Advice about Assignments

We include links below to each assignment and some of the context you might keep in mind as you begin working with your tutee on each writing task. As you work with your student, either you or the student may suggest changes as fit the student's needs and circumstances.

You will not be able to complete this entire list of assignments, so plan to spend more or less time on narrative to help build a student's confidence or to work on detail and focus. Similarly, spend more or less time on summary for those students who need more practice with critical reading and writing. Keep in mind that we would like to have two academic pieces and the postscript in the final portfolio to evaluate the student's readiness for the next composition course.
