GWAR Writing Fellowship Program
The GWAR Writing Fellowship Program places a Writing, Reading, and Study Skills (WRSS) Tutor in a GWAR course, at the request of a professor, to provide writing assistance to students in the course. The Writing Fellow participates in class discussions in relation to writing. Additionally, the Writing Fellow takes notes on class material, discussions, and lectures, including notes on important aspects of content and conventions of writing in the specific discipline. The Writing Fellow tracks their notes in a GWAR Writing Fellowship Log, which is read by all WRSS Tutors in order to stay well-versed on the assignments and expectations of the course. When students enrolled in the course seek tutorial support at CARP, all WRSS Tutors will be fully informed of the course’s assignments and the professor’s expectations.
CARP has placed Writing Fellows in a variety of GWAR courses in several different disciplines. These courses include History 300, Business 300, Hospitality and Tourism Management 531, International Relations 309, Environmental Studies 450, Criminal Justice 323, and Sociology 300.
Mathematics Fellowship Program
The Mathematics Fellowship Program places a Mathematics, Science, and Business Tutor (MSB) in a Mathematics course, at the request of a professor, to provide assistance to students enrolled in the course. The Mathematics Fellow participates in group work scenarios by asking leading questions, which help students identify their mistakes, and by providing conceptual explanations to help students better understand the problems with which they are working. This helps students gain the skills to find their own answers to such problems. Additionally, the Mathematics Fellow records their notes on the class in a Mathematics Fellowship Log, which all MSB Tutors read in order to stay well-versed on the assignments and expectations for the course. When students enrolled in the course seek tutorial support at CARP, all MSB Tutors will be fully informed on the course’s content, assignments, and professor’s expectations.
