The Center for Writing

The Keene State College Center for Writing supports faculty teaching our first-year writing course, strengthening the learning experience of our students. The Center recognizes that support of faculty teaching and student learning is most effective when faculty and students have options.

Students in Thinking and Writing courses benefit from a menu of experiences:

ITW Partnership Program Options

Option A. No Classroom Writing Support For faculty who not anticipate needing support from the Center this semester, but may refer students on a case-by-case basis.

Option B. Workshops/Optional Visits This model includes: In-class workshops as needed preceded by meeting with an assigned tutor one week prior to the workshop to review specific points you would like to see addressed in the workshop(s), and referring students to the Center for support on a case-by-case basis.

Option C. Workshops/Required Visits This model includes In-class workshops as needed preceded by meeting with an assigned tutor one week prior to the workshop to review specific points you would like to see addressed as well as other ideas or issues, or requiring students to make 1 or 2 Center for Writing appointments, preceded by a meeting/conversation with the Center’s Assistant Director or a tutor to review specific expectations/outcomes for these tutorials.

In-Class Workshops

The Center for Writing also offers in-class Workshops arranged sequentially to work with ITW course content, as students move from draft to draft. Workshop information can be found by clicking on the “Faculty” tab of the Center for Writing web page.

Writing Center Sessions

The Center for Writing offers one-one-one tutorials with trained writing assistants. To make an appointment, students can visit the Center or call (603) 358-2412. The Center also offers weekly appointments with the same tutor for students who would benefit from coming to the Center consistently throughout the semester.

Our Thinking and Writing courses challenge students to take up the demands of college-level writing. And our Center for Writing offers multiple options and layers of support as students rise to meet those challenges.
