Writing Across the Curriculum Panel

(In collaboration with the Linfield Writing Program) 
Tuesday, February 23, 4:15-5:15, T.J. Day 222


Across the board, Linfield classes require that students write clearly and critically. So how can we most effectively coach our students to become stronger writers as they progress in their disciplines?

This panel presents Linfield faculty across divisions sharing strategies including:

  • What comprises “good” student writing
  • Ideas for writing assignments that engage critical thinking
  • Suggestions for class exercises
  • Time-saving tips for making comments (and more)
Creating Effective Small Group Assignments

Tuesday, March 8th , 4-5, T.J. Day 222 and 
(repeated) Wednesday, March 9th, 4-5, T.J.Day 102

When they work, small group assignments are excellent learning activities that promote collaboration, independent learning, and presentation practice. When they DON’T work so well, you wish you never uttered the words, “Count off by 4’s…”

This workshop presents findings of a focus group of Linfield students who love/hate small group work, and offers the opportunity to share best small group assignment practices with colleagues from across disciplines.
