Beyond Fixin’ Their Papers: Using Comics, Visuals, and Audience to Engage Your College Writing Student
Phillip Peevy, Lab Instructor, Padrón Campus
New tutors often have difficulty knowing what to do in tutoring sessions involving freshman writing students beyond "fixin' their papers." What they should do with their students is to teach pupils to think through their writing by using visuals because getting students to THINK like a writer is much more effective. This workshop will explain (1) how tutors can help students effectively think through college writing and communication (2) how tutors can use a variety of graphic tools (including comics, graphic novels, and other materials) to help students think as they write.
