What to expect from your Fellow

Writing Fellows will read drafts of papers and give students one-on-one assistance with their revisions.  Fellows can give advice on organization and grammar, but cannot give instruction on subject matter content, nor will they discuss grades.

Faculty responsibilities 

Faculty who are assigned a Writing Fellow are expected to adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Meet with the coordinator of the program before being assigned a Fellow.
  • Require at least two papers (minimum of three pages each) written for a grade.
  • Be willing to require all students in your class to participate fully in the Writing Fellows program and assign a grade penalty for students who refuse.
  • Meet with your Writing Fellow before each set of conferences to discuss your assignments and expectations. 
  • Meet with your Fellow after the papers have been graded to discuss how successfully the students fulfilled the assignment.
  • Administer a student questionnaire at the end of the semester and fill out a faculty questionnaire.

It is generally helpful to make it clear to your students that they are expected to work with the Fellow outside of class.  The Fellow needs to have the drafts at least a week before conferences are scheduled, and the students will need at least a week after the conferences to complete their revisions.  Ideally, Fellowing requirements should be clearly laid out in the syllabus.
