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

When classes are meeting face-to-face and the Writing & Reading Center (WRC) is open on main campus, the most effective method for encouraging students to utilize the 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.

However, at this time, during the college's COVID-19 suspension of F2F classes, we ask that faculty who assign papers in their classes remind their students (e.g., in their syllabus, in their Moodle course shell, or in strategic Moodle announcements or class emails) that the WRC is able to help support them in their writing process.

Any questions? Please email WRC Director Judy Chu at jchu@nmc.edu.

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

The WRC Director and lead staff 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 email WRC Director Judy Chu at jchu@nmc.edu.
