The Institute for Writing and Rhetoric seeks talented and interested MALS students to serve as Teaching Assistants to professors teaching Writing 2 and 3 in the fall and winter terms. Descriptions for these courses can be found in the ORC.
Writing 2-3 TAs typically work 25 hours per week. Responsibilities include: preparing for and attending all class meetings; holding one-hour individual and small-group writing tutorials; meeting weekly with the 2-3 staff to discuss pedagogical issues or issues related to individual student progress; and meeting regularly with professors to discuss the concerns of the course. TAs may also offer workshops, small group meetings, office hours, or library orientations, as the course requires.
Teaching Assistants are paid a stipend of $5750 for two terms of work. TAs are hired for two terms, but the second term of employment is contingent on successful performance in the first.
The position is open to all MALS students, but some preference will be given to those who are working on their theses or who have completed the bulk of their MALS coursework. Good writing, research, and interpersonal skills are essential. Prior teaching or tutoring experience a plus.
