Encourage Students to Visit the Writing Centers!

The KNIGHTLYnews is an online forum where FWS instructors and other teachers of writing can swap and share ideas for best classroom practice. Weekly posts are designed to help teachers develop lesson plans and writing assignments, and respond to classroom challenges by introducing new teaching tools and sharing emerging pedagogical ideas. Posts also direct readers to program and campus resources that support teaching and learning, and provide opportunities for peer collaboration and mentorship.

As we approach the end of the semester, you are likely challenging students with more complex writing and even research projects, so I write today to ask for your continued support and promotion.

Specifically, please remind students of the following:

Writing Center tutors can support all writers, at any stage of the writing process, on any project. Students are encouraged to make an appointment to simply brainstorm assignments, talk-out ideas, understand feedback on their writing, and revise and refine drafts. Working with a tutor can be an especially productive way to get re-energized about a writing project or simply get started!

 The CWC loves walk-in appointments, but students can also make appointments by registering here: https://cornell.mywconline.net/


The Cornell Writing Centers locations and schedule are as follows:

3:00-5:00, M-Th

Rockefeller 178

Mann Library, Consultation Area


7:00-10:00, Sun-Th

Thank you, in advance, for your continued support of the Cornell Writing Centers! We look forward to future conversations about writing with you and your students!
