WAMs (Writing Associate Mentors)
The WAM Program pairs WAs with students in a semester-long, one-on-one relationship focused on the writing process. Given the individualized support the WAM Program offers, each relationship is different. All WAM relationships, however, further the Writing Program's desire to meet the needs of a diverse community of learners and writers, focusing on all stages of the writing process and on writing concepts such as structure, argument, and clarity. This semester there are eight partnerships. They include work on senior theses, transitions to college writing, and writing for unfamiliar disciplines.
WAMs can help with:
- research methods
- prewriting techniques
- information organization
- argument development
- revision strategies
WAM assignments have all been filled for the spring 2013 semester. For those who would like a WAM in the fall, please check back in early September for an update.
