|Responding to Student Writing|
A Note to Readers
The ability of students to revise their work, or to make future writing stronger, depends in part on the nature of our responses. In this issue of Writing Across Berkeley, we look at our end of this dialogue. What kinds of questions can we ask to help students improve their writing? What is the process of peer tutoring, and how can it help both students and instructors? Are there differences in the way we approach second language writers, and what can they teach us? And what are the pitfalls and benefits of establishing peer response groups in the classroom? As always, we welcome your responses to these articles, as well as requests for subjects you would like to see covered in future issues.
In This Issue
Writing Across Berkeley is part of a campuswide conversation about writing: we'd love to hear from our readers. If you want to respond to one of the articles, have ideas for future pieces, would like to write for WAB, or have some language peeves to air, please email Gail Offen-Brown at email@example.com.
