Important News for UH Faculty: The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has approved a Writing in the Disciplines CORE requirement for students entering as of Fall 2007. Click here for more details.
The Writing Center supports UH faculty in instituting effective writing practice, instruction, and evaluation through consultation, design, and training services to help meet students’ writing-instruction needs.
Writing Center staff can assist in designing discipline-specific writing assignments that effectively communicate your expectations, developing rubrics that ensure workable feedback and reduce the grading workload, and training TAs on an individual and departmental basis. We can also provide systemized assessment services to develop a profile of the writing strengths and weaknesses of your student population, as well as uncover student attitudes, practices, and beliefs about writing.
