Structuring the Supplementary Writing Lab.
Harris, Muriel
The basic structure of a writing laboratory at Purdue University, Indiana, is described in this paper. Physical facilities, record keeping plans, instructional approaches and materials, and evaluation methods are discussed. As a laboratory situation, the course was intended as a supplement to regular composition classes. Five graduate students and a director provided individualized instruction according to a mastery approach in which students progressed at their own rates. Material costs were kept to a minimum through the use of short review handouts based on textbook research. Extensive record keeping charted student progress, and evaluation of staff effectiveness was performed by classroom instructors and the students themselves. Appendixes include sample record keeping materials such as study plans and instructor evaluation forms, sample instructional materials, and student evaluation forms. (KS)
