Just as faculty benefit from having peers read their work prior to publication, students benefit from having their work read by peers before it is graded. In both cases, peer readers bring their experience - as writers of the same sort of works – to their experience as critical readers.
Faculty can have Peer Writing Tutors attached to any College Writing class. Writing and Academic Mentors are available for all First-Year Seminars. The Writing Center makes Drop-in Peer Writing Tutors available in CTLR and in the Commons.
