If you want to get a head start, though, or you are still considering enrolling in the course, you can look over the information here (note that these are pdf files you will need to download and open):

Peer Tutoring: What’s left

At this point, we’re wrapping up the work (tutoring, lingering reading responses, “in the center” projects, tutoring reflections). Here’s what you need to know/do between now and the end of the semester:

  • Tuesday, 12-2: Meet in the writing center to continue tutoring as needed.
  • Friday, 12-5 by 11:59pm: “In the Center” projects are due on Canvas by this time. If you choose to do the extra tutoring hours instead, you’ll get credit for this after you turn in your completed tutoring log to me.
  • Tuesday, 12-9: MEET IN CAM 206 for final meeting (evaluations, pizza, discussion of lingering questions and final tutoring reflection papers). You’ll have the opportunity to go over to the center after we meet to continue tutoring.
  • Wednesday, 12-10: The writing center officially closes for the semester. 
  • Monday, 12-15: Tutoring reflection papers due on Canvas by 11:59pm. Tutoring logs due to me (CAM 224-C) or in my mailbox (CAM 201) by 11:59pm that evening as well (okay, really by 5pm). Any lingering work (reading responses, for example) will be due at this time as well.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns (denise.landrumgeyer@swosu.edu).
