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

Because the Writing & Reading Center (WRC) has suspended operation in our Scholars Hall location on main campus for the Fall 2020 semester, we are unable to host face-to-face class visits to the WRC for a brief presentation of the services offered, as we have done so before COVID. Instead, starting Week 2, if you are an instructor meeting livestream with your class, we will be piloting some Zoom visits to your class--in other words, if you contact us with some advance notice, confirm a brief 5-7 minute presentation time slot, and send us the Zoom link to your livestream class meeting, we will try to send 1-2 WRC readers to your class to talk briefly about the WRC's service to your students. Such a visit would likely be most useful during the first few weeks of class (again, starting Week 2) or before a major project.

If a Zoom class presentation doesn't work for your schedule this Fall semester, we ask that faculty who assign papers in their classes remind their students (e.g., in their syllabus, on a writing assignment, in their Moodle course shell, or in strategic Moodle forum announcements, or class emails) that the WRC is able to help support them in their writing process... virtually and remotely this Fall term.

Any questions? Please email WRC Director Judy Chu at

Writing & reading Center (WRC) Materials

The Writing & Reading Center will also be distributing mini-flyers to the Student Success Center, NMC dorms, and NMC Library this Fall semester.

Teaching Writing Resources

Integrating writing into the classroom can sometimes be a challenging task. At any point and time you can contact WRC Director Judy Chu 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) or Excelsior College's OWL, both of which are excellent references for 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 about your assignments or the WRC's operations, please email WRC Director Judy Chu at
