Faculty Support

Thank you for your interest in the Write Place!  Write Place offers peer-to-peer writing support in a comfortable, collaborative environment.  We can support students on ANY writing assignment and during ANY stage of the writing process.  Our goal is to improve not only the specific writing assignment but a student’s overall writing process.

Our Mission is one of service, and this extends to all on campus. The Write Place is not meant to replace the writing instruction that happens in your course but rather to compliment that instruction.

OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU!

Write Place Consultants are trained to create discussion with the student-client about his or her writing. Writing Consultants will not write on a student’s essay or “promise” a grade. Writing Consultants will encourage students to further discuss assignment concerns with you, the course instructor.

YOU CAN HELP US!

We value your opinion of us and appreciate it when you encourage your students to leverage our service. However, consultation sessions are most effective when students willingly come to the Write Place. We encourage you not to “require” students to use this service. If you do choose to have students use our service prior to the deadline of an assignment, please contact Christina Klimo, Write Place Coordinator, at cklimo1@udayton.edu. To accommodate your class, the Coordinator may need to have additional resources available in the Write Place.

CLASSROOM VISITS

We encourage you to schedule a classroom visit with a Write Place Consultant. A Write Place consultant will explain the benefits of a writing consultation session to your students. These visits generally last about 5-10 minutes and help to clarify questions and concerns that some students may have about the service. Contact Christina Klimo, Write Place Coordinator, at cklimo1@udayton.edu to set up your visit.

SYLLABUS STATEMENT

WRITING COACHING

Writing Coaching is a new initiative that is being spearheaded by the joint efforts of the English Department and the Write Place. This program will place a graduate student studying English with a student struggling with college-level writing to work together frequently (i.e. weekly, bi-weekly) fulfilling the mission of the Write Place to create stronger writers. Together, the students may work on class assignments or focus on specific areas of difficulty. The structure of this system reflects that of the Write Place but hopes students will benefit from additional exercises, consistency, and consultant familiarity.

If you believe you have a student that will benefit from coaching or if you have questions about the program, please contact Christina Klimo at cklimo1@udayton.edu.
