Bard’s Writing Fellows are tutors who read the first substantial drafts of student papers and hold conferences to suggest revisions for every paper assigned in the class that they tutor (usually representing a minimum of 25-pages per semester). The purpose of this program, in which peer tutors are dedicated to specific courses, is to facilitate the oft-repeated desire by professors to get better essays from students, while preparing the students to write and revise stronger senior projects. While teachers tend to talk about the writing and revision process only in freshman academic writing courses, research reveals the formidable advantages to exploring the writing process in all disciplines. Students are more likely to be engaged in classes when they receive regular feedback.
