Tutoring Writing Across the Curriculum

Welcome!

This is an image of Writing Fellows from 2004, when they learned in a classroom with a mural called "The Writer's Influence" that expressed concepts that help people improve their writing. Although the mural no longer exists, Writing Fellows still learn in the same classroom today. https://chancellor.wisc.edu/AR2004/learning.html

What is English 403?

English 403 is an English/interdisciplinary Honors Seminar for new undergraduate Writing Fellows. Writing Fellows, selected undergraduates from a wide range of disciplines at UW-Madison, serve as peer writing tutors for students in writing-intensive courses across the disciplines. In English 403, new Writing Fellows dive into the theory of writing instruction, peer collaboration, multicultural education, and cutting edge issues in the fields of Composition and Rhetoric, Writing Center Studies, and Writing Across the Curriculum. Students in English 403 engage in semester-long projects in which they conduct original research about important topics relevant to writing and instruction.
