PLANGERE WRITING CENTER INTERNSHIPS - Fall 2017
The Plangere Writing Center at College Avenue Campus offers three sections of a 3-credit Internship course combining practicum, theory, and writing project elements. Acceptance into the internships is competitive, based on an application, statement of interest, and academic writing sample.
PWC Intern Tutors receive intensive hands-on experience and training in the art of teaching and tutoring writing. Working with undergraduate writers in a weekly practicum tutoring session allows intern tutors to develop professional communication, patience, and flexibility. In the weekly class meetings, interns receive practical tutor training, compose original essays on writing and tutoring theory texts, collaborate on group presentations, and process internship experiences through formal and informal reflection, under the guidance of a Rutgers Writing Program instructor.
In addition to the challenging but gratifying experience of peer tutoring at the collegiate level, this graded internship class is a chance to grow as a writer, student, and professional. Interns will consider new perspectives, hone revision skills, create connections, bolster pedagogical philosophy, and develop professionalism.
*Interns meet for classwork and training on Friday mornings, 9:50-11:10am, and tutor one unpaid session per week as a practicum component. Interns schedule sessions according to their own availability. Additional tutoring sessions are paid.
There are three internship sections available.
