Developing Reading and Writing Assignments for Your Classes

Presented By: Suzanne Lane, PhD, Director, Writing Across the Curriculum, MIT

Based on Suzanne Lane’s Workshops on Monday and Tuesday morning, participants develop their own assignment ideas in discussion with other workshop participants and Suzanne Lane. The point of this workshop is to properly develop assignments (not just to sketch them out), i.e. participants should bring their syllabi and have some idea of what they want to achieve with an assignment, where it fits into a class, etc.

Participation in this workshop is limited to registered participants only. All registered participants are required to attend the entire workshop.

Lunch will be provided at 12:30pm and refreshments will be available in the afternoon. If you have any specific dietary needs, please do let us know.

Printouts of presentation slides are available upon request.

Please direct all questions and RSVP to
