Peer Tutoring: end-of-semester odds and ends

We are almost to the end of the semester. I just wanted to send out some end-of-course reminders and a schedule of what’s left for you to do, which I’ll also post on the class blog (this information is also on the syllabus/course schedule you received at the beginning of the semester):


Sunday, April 27: “In the Center” projects drafts and memos should be uploaded by 11:59pm to Canvas. If you cannot upload your project, bring it with you to the final class meeting on Monday, April 28 (information about the project can be found here:

Monday, April 28: the FINAL MEETING of the semester in CAM 106. There will be food (pizza, probably), you will fill out class evaluations, and we will de-brief on your experiences this semester and make sure you know what you have left to do. This whole thing should take 45 minutes to an hour at most. After that, you will have the opportunity to go over to the writing center to get any last tutoring in as needed.

Wednesday, April 30: The writing center closes for the semester at 9pm, so you want to get as many hours in before that time as possible.

Monday, May 5: Tutoring reflection drafts due uploaded to Canvas by 11:59pm (3-4 page paper or analogous multimedia project; details here:; I will be in my office from 10:30am-12:30pm on Monday for you to drop off tutoring hours sheets (CAM 224C).  If you cannot come to my office at that time, put the sheets in my mailbox in CAM 202 (the Language & Literature library).

Wednesday, May 7: I will be in my office (CAM 224-C) from 10am-1pm in case you need to turn in anything else; you have until 5pm on this day to turn in any missing work (such as reading responses on Canvas).


I will also post my finals schedule on the class blog next week. As always, let me know if you have any questions or concerns (
