WGS WRITING SUPPORT

This term (Winter/Spring 2017) the WGS program has implemented a Writing Instruction Initiative program in order to support WGS students with their writing assignments.

The program offers one-on-one instruction for various forms of academic writing and oral presentations required in the program's courses. Students can bring their work-in-progress from any course they are taking, in various stages of development (brain-storming and planning, to revising a draft). Writing Teaching Assistants will additionally assist students with the following:

- Interpret assignments
- Form a strong thesis or research question
- Develop an analysis
- Construct a coherent argument
- Organize your paper effectively
- Use and document sources properly
- Revise drafts, and improve grammar and style

Papers will not be proof-read, rather Writing TA's will assist students in learning skills to identify and correct problems of grammar and syntax in their papers.
