Every year, the Institute for Writing and Rhetoric seeks MALS students to serve as teaching assistants to professors teaching Writing 2-3.
Writing 2-3 is a first year undergraduate writing course designed to help writers who feel that they could benefit from intensive intellectual engagement and academic support. Teaching assistants meet individually with their students for 45-minute tutorial sessions, every week, in order to closely develop their research abilities and skills as writers.
Writing 2-3 Teaching Assistants are paid a stipend of $8,000 for two terms of employment in fall and winter terms, to be paid over six months (September through November and January through March), for about twenty hours of work per week while those terms are in session.
Strong writing, research, and interpersonal skills are essential. Prior teaching or tutoring experience is a plus, but not required.
The application period for this position is open in late-winter, early-spring of 2023. Priority consideration is given to applications received by May 15, 2023.
To apply, contact the Writing 2-3 Coordinator, Professor Brian O'Connor at: Brian.O'Connor@Dartmouth.edu
