At LaGuardia Community College, Writing Fellows work with program coordinators and new faculty to practice the principles and philosophy of WID and facilitate the development of Writing Intensive courses.
Fellows gain expertise in WAC / WID methodology by attending CUNY-wide and LaGuardia workshops and conference programs. Weekly cohort meetings allow time to discuss readings, plan for upcoming faculty sessions, and workshop fellow’s own writing, syllabi, and assignments.
Fellows also work with LaGuardia students in the Writing Center each week.
In the Fall Fellows collaborate with faculty at bi-weekly meetings to develop critical components of a 'WIDed' syllabus. Fellows also schedule meetings with faculty to provide one-on-one support. In the Spring Fellows continue to assist workshops on their own.
Writing Fellows 2010: Garrett Eisler, Peter Zazzali, Shawna Brandle, Haiwen Chu, Christine Caruso, and Laura Limonic.
