DeSousa-Brent Study and Writing Group Fellows assist DB Scholars in organizing and managing effective study and writing groups. Study Group Fellows help small groups of students enrolled in courses such as PSYC101 and ECON101 acquire the collaborative study, note-taking, and test-taking skills required to excel in those courses. Writing Group Fellows assist groups in conducting peer reviews of writing assignments. Groups meet one hour per week. In these meetings, the Fellow serves, not as a “sage on the stage,” but as a “guide on the side,” facilitating a process in which group members help each other master course content or enhance their writing.
