Instead, make sure that your analysis is grounded in the readings and theory. Make judicious use of quotes, and cite specific examples to support your claims and make your case. However, your use of quoted passages (or scenes from the film) should not exceed your discussion of them in length. Writing Tutors Program In this class, we are fortunate to have help from the Undergraduate Writing Tutors Program. Writing tutors are curious, well-trained peers who provide feedback to students on drafts of writing assignments. Their role is to encourage and challenge students to strengthen their writing and clarify their ideas. While writing tutors are not Teaching Assistants and will not assess papers, they will focus writing conferences on questions that generate clearer writing and stronger thinking about the content. Writing tutors will also look for patterns of grammatical error in student papers, explaining how students can learn to correct these errors. Writing tutors have taken a semester-long practicum to develop their practices for working effectively with peers on writing. While tutors will audit several classes or recitations and read a few of our course materials, they primarily work in individualized conferences where they ask questions, provide suggestions, prompt students to reread, rethink, revise, and craft new writing. They aim to help students develop their writing in response to particular assignments and over the long term.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
