The Assignment Lab

If you are enrolled in a writing intensive section or an Honors or Honors contract course, you are eligible to work with one of the Writing Fellows, advanced Ph.D. candidates from the CUNY Graduate Center in what we call, “The Assignment Lab.”

A “laboratory” is a place where scientists engage in rigorous inquiry, and we hope you will take advantage of the Assignment Lab in that spirit, as a place to ask tough questions.

  • You might start with your understanding of the assignment: Is this what the teacher wants? Am I on the right track? Is there anything else I’m supposed to do?

  • If you have a draft, you might ask the Fellow to read it with you, out loud. Are there parts where a reader might become confused or get lost? Ask the Fellow to function as an ideal reader and to point out sections that might need more work.

  • The Assignment Lab is not a “fix my paper” kind of place, but if you know you have grammar problems but are not sure how to correct them, do feel free to ask for that kind of feedback, too.

You can make an appointment in the Reading and Writing Center (L219 or at ext. 5405) or in Honors (M377 or at ext. 5365).

Fellows are available in both spaces.


One hour appointments are available Monday – Thursday, usually between 10 and 3 PM, Fall and Spring semester only, beginning around October 1st and April 1st.
