Below is a list of resources for both students and faculty
to support writing across UNH

Graduate Student Resources

  • A link to the WAC Clearinghouse text on "Re-Imagining Doctoral Writing

  • Basic Needs Support - Provides students with assistance and access to food, laptops, meal swipes, emergency finances, etc. 
  • Center for Academic Resources (CFAR) - CFAR provides study training, drop-in tutoring, and study groups for selected courses (often math, science, and business courses). CFAR also offers individual academic mentoring for eligible students. 
  • Center for Excellence and Innovation in Teaching and Learning (CEITL) - Offers a rich collection of resources, information, and expertise to support the university's mission of enhancing student learning through the continual improvement of teaching.

The Peer Response Presentation

The two videos below are recordings of the skits we use during peer response presentations. Between each skit, we engage the class in a discussion about the effectiveness of each response session. We've also included the two handouts we bring to classes for the peer response presentation: first, a copy of the essay from the videos so that the class can follow along; second, a handout of tips for approaching peer response sessions.
