I met with Lindee Owens and Pavel Zemliansky in hopes of getting some guidance in how I could effectively introduce writing into my Computer Science courses. They helped me come up with ideas for assignments. After I received my first writing assignment for Discrete Structures II, Lindee examined a sample of my students’ work to help me provide feedback to the class. Lindee confirmed my initial thought that my students knewtheir content area and wrote well mechanically. She also shared with me how my students could improve their writing by focusing on their thesis, working on smooth transitions and clarifying their viewpoints. I was able to articulate these points with my students and saw improvement in the second writing assignment they did for me.
