Drew Seminar Writing Resources.


Drew Seminar Writing Resources

The workshop structures below are designed to follow the writing sequence of the DSEM although they can be used in other classes or at other times than suggested. For example, part way through the semester you might realize that your students need to work on reading or summary skills. Repeating a workshop or holding a brief impromptu workshop on another class day as needed are both effective ways to help students strengthen their writing. These workshops may be facilitated by Professors and/or Writing Fellows, but they work best if either the Professor or the Writing Fellow takes responsibility for logistics and both circulate and offer feedback as the students work. These structures can be adapted to any course content.

Planning DSEM Workshops

Before you start, the first two documents will be helpful reviews, especially if faculty and Writing Fellow discuss them before the first workshop. Samples of workshops that work offer general examples that may be used in class or adapted.
