The Power of the Pen: Writing Mentorship and Chicana/o M. A. Students
Negrón-Gonzales, Genevieve M.
Journal of Latinos and Education, v13 n1 p62-70 2014
This article draws on my experience as an adjunct professor in the Master's program of the Department of Mexican-American Studies at a large public university in California. Seeing my students' struggles with writing, I conceived of a set of practices of writing mentorship anchored by a series of writing workshops held in Summer 2012. In this article, I document the pedagogy and content of these writing workshops in order to think about the unique struggles and opportunities Chicana/o Master's students face in the writing process and to provide an outline for other instructors interested in developing a practice of writing mentorship.
