Instructor Resources

In addition to assisting students, the Writing & Reading Center can also help instructors to integrate and facilitate writing in the classroom.

Writing & reading Center Presentations

The most effective method for encouraging students to utilize the Writing & Reading Center (WRC) is to bring them to the Center (in SH 221) for a brief presentation of the services offered. This is often most useful during the first few weeks of class or before a major project. If you are unable to do so, a WRC staff reader can come to your classroom to talk with your students. To schedule a presentation, contact Judy Chu at (231) 995-1180 or

Writing & reading Center (WRC) Materials

The Writing & Reading Center also has bookmarks and mini-fliers available, and we'd be happy to send you some. Please contact us if you are interested.

Teaching Writing Resources

Integrating writing into the classroom can sometimes be a challenging task. At any point and time you can contact Megan Ward with questions you may have pertaining to creating writing assignments, teaching writing, or grading writing. In addition, there are several resources available online. The majority of these resources come from Purdue University's Online Writing Lab (OWL), which is an excellent reference for both instructors and students alike.

Additional Assistance

Any one of our readers and our coordinator would be more than happy to give you feedback on potential assignments. It can be especially helpful to get a student's viewpoint before it is assigned. We can offer more guidance during a specific project, give you writing instruction direction, or help to problem solve if you find a writing concern becoming apparent. If you have questions or comments at any time, please contact Judy Chu, the Writing & Reading Center Director, at 995-1180 or (email especially during the summer).
