Thanks to all who responded to my query on peer tutor restructuring.  I
now have two requests that relate to the other part of my job -- teaching.
 
1) I think I remember discussion around linking reading and writing
classes in one.  A colleague and I have been talking about doing this for
a long time, but have not had the chance to sit down and develop the idea
thoroughly.  Can I ask, at the risk of repeating a past strand, if anyone
has any ideas/syllabi/thought around this idea?  Right now, we have two
distinct courses: a "pre-tech" reading course (Critical Reading) and a
"pre-tech" writing course (Introduction to English)  We repeat a LOT of
the same ideas, thoughts, skills. . . I would appreciate any ideas on
this at all.
 
2) I ran across an article not long ago on adapting Nancy Atwell's
"writing and reading workshop" techniques to the adult classroom.  Of
course, it is now lost in the muck of the semester.  However, if anyone
has successfully adopted her techniques to a two-year college setting, I
would be very interested in seeing a course description.
 
Thanks, in advance, for your response
