CAFE now provides help with the teaching of writing in your courses. As the current Composition Coordinator for first-year composition (English 150) and advanced composition (English 400) and a teacher of writing here at Longwood for 14 years, I am ready to connect you with insight regarding the way students perceive and perform writing in your classes. Effective student performance in English 150 is one thing, but we must have them pulling those skills and knowledge to your courses as well.

I will offer workshops on the designing of writing assignments, teaching of writing for your assignments, and the assessing of formal and informal writing. If you’d like to consult about your ideas, simply need a sounding board for new or old ideas, I can schedule that as well. There are many ways to use writing in your course that assist student thinking rather than simply adding paperwork to your growing pile. Attend a workshop or request a consultation. I’ll be there.
