Writing and Rhetoric
I spent three years as a Writing Associate at Swarthmore College. As a coordinator, I also organized the inaugural year of the Speaking Associates Program and trained our tutors to provide helpful and constructive feedback on students’ oral presentations. We worked with presentations for an honors biology seminar, helped students prepare to lead class discussions in their first-year English literature seminar, and coached artists to speak about their work in an “artist talk,” among other assignments.
I also co-led a workshop with Chelcie Rowell in November 2010 at the National Conference on Peer Tutors in Writing. Our project focused on working with advanced students whose rhetorical skills did not match their mastery of content.
