WHAT WE DO FOR INSTRUCTORS

Class Visits

Writing Center staff members are available to provide your classes with a brief overview of the Center's services. Meeting a tutor can make students feel more comfortable about visiting a SIUC Writing Center for the first time. To request an introduction, you may fill out a Writing Center Presentation form. For further information on setting up an introduction, contact the Writing Center at write@siu.edu.

Outreach

Each semester, instructors of writing intensive classes may sign up for our Outreach Project. For each Outreach session, a team of tutors enters the classroom to work with small groups of students on peer response and revision skills. If you are interested in learning more about this project, please contact the Writing Center's director, Dr. Deepak Pant at dpant@siu.edu.

Handouts

We offer a wide variety of handouts on topics such as revising and editing, grammar and punctuation, sentence structure, invention, reading and study skills, and research.

Resource Texts

Handbooks, workbooks, rhetorics, anthologies and readers, guides to study and reading skills, technical writing guides, spelling resources, and documentation manuals are all available for review at the Morris Writing Center.
