Shawna Shapiro–Tutors as Educators–Not Editors

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

We had a great session with Shawna Shapiro last Thursday.  Thanks to the peer writing tutors and the foreign language tutors who attended and helped make it a success!  For those of you who could not make the session, I’m uploading Shawna’s handout from the session: PWT_Workshop_Oct22

Ms. Shapiro will be speaking this week at the Robert A. Jones ’59 House. Trained PWTs can use this talk as one makeup session.
