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 in-person operation in our Scholars Hall location on main campus for the 2020-21 academic year, 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. Also, due to our reduced Summer 2021 hours (starting June 1) and reduced staff, we are not able to provide Zoom class visits from WRC staff during livestream classes. However, we hope to offer both in-person and Zoom WRC presentations in Fall 2021, depending on where the college is (and student services are) in terms of in-person offerings.

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
