RIC's First Annual Writing Week (2010)
Join us for a week to celebrate writing at Rhode Island College!
- Workshop: Responding Effectively to Student Writing: Tuesday, October 19, 2010 from 2:00-3:00 in Craig-Lee 255. We'll talk about how best to respond to student writing in person, on paper, and electroni-cally, and we'll think about how to make feedback helpful and useful.
- National Day on Writing: Wednesday, October 20th from 10:30-2:30. The Writing Marathon kick-off begins at 10:30 at Alumni Lounge in Roberts Hall. Then, find a place to write anywhere on campus (try writing in a group, so that you can share!). Return to Alumni Lounge at 1:30 for sharing and refreshments. This is a nationwide event from NCTE, but our local marathon is brought to you by the Rhode Island Writing Project (RIWP), the Writing Center, and the First Year Writing Program.
