Working with Student Writers

Essays on Tutoring and Teaching

Leonard Podis and JoAnne M. Podis

This revised, expanded collection provides practical and theoretical knowledge for undergraduate writing associates and graduate teaching assistants. Unlike similar collections, this volume is comprised largely of pieces authored by tutors themselves, offering hands-on advice for current classmates and future tutors; thus the volume highlights specific issues that arise when writing associates and novice teachers actually attempt to practice their craft. When used in pedagogy courses, the essays can serve both as sources of instruction about tutoring and teaching and as models for students’ own course papers. This edition incorporates fifteen new essays to complement the best selections from the first edition.
The Editors: Leonard A. Podis is Professor of Rhetoric and Composition and English at Oberlin College. JoAnne M. Podis is Vice President for Academic Affairs and Professor of English at Ursuline College. Longtime collaborators, they have published three books on writing and numerous scholarly articles in journals including College English, College Composition and Communication, and Rhetoric Review.
