Are You an Instructor?
The Writing Center offers services to support instructors and teaching assistants as they teach and evaluate writing. The center director is available to consult on assignment design and implementation. She also offers in-class workshops on specific assignments. Workshops can be customized to the particulars of any given assignment, from short response papers to longer research projects. Past workshops have included analyzing on film as text, navigating IRB, studying for in-class essays, and writing an argumentative essay.
Contact the Director at writdir[at]u[dot]washington[dot]edu for additional information about workshops.
We have handouts with helpful hints for TAs and instructors for helping students improve their writing skills.
