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 Writing & Reading Center (WRC) is back in our Scholars Hall location on main campus for the 2021-22 academic year. However, due to the continuing pandemic, we are unable to host face-to-face class visits/tours to the WRC for a brief presentation of the services offered, as we have done so before COVID. However, we have offered Zoom WRC presentations to classes in Fall 2021 and even some in-person presentations to classes (esp. in Scholars Hall).

If you're interested in a WRC presentation this semester, either at the beginning of the term or when you launch/assign a writing assignment, please email WRC Director Judy Chu at jchu@nmc.edu.

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 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 jchu@nmc.edu.
