Writing Intensive Instructor Resources

Professor Amber Spry teaching a writing intensive class

These materials are designed to help WI instructors teach the standards and practices of writing in their disciplines. Your students have been introduced to academic writing and research in UWS, and you can benefit by becoming familiar with UWS learning goals and terminology. We are working with faculty to develop Departmental Writing Guides, including BiologyEconomics, and Psychology, with more to come. Discipline-Specific and Interdisciplinary Materials developed at Brandeis and elsewhere are listed below, followed by Peer Review and Self-Assessment resources that can help your students compose, self-evaluate, and revise. Finally, we offer guidance on developing your own Evaluating, Commenting and Grading practices.
