The Library building will be CLOSED from December 12th through January 12th. Online library services will still be available. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
We begin with national and Pennsylvania standards of content areas, breaking them down to behavioral terms.
These are then transfered into a unit and daily instructional objectives.
Other higher education institutions and professional organizations can be great places to begin your research for resources.
However, when resources have not been vetted for you, look for these characteristics:
Relevance to Your Topic
assess timeliness and subject coverage
Validity of the Research
determine the quality of the research
evaluate credentials, education, experience, etc.
The Writing Center is staffed by DelVal undergraduate peer tutors who help with writing assignments in all your courses. We view writing as a process that involves planning, reading, drafting, revising, and editing—writing with substance involves discovering your meaning through brainstorming, sharing, and getting lots of feedback.
Tutors help you gain a fresh perspective on the writing process, and can assist with any stage of the process: choosing a topic or working through writer's block, generating ideas, creating an outline, sharpening a thesis, arranging and organizing paragraphs, citing correctly and fluently, editing grammar and mechanics, and more.
Instructors receive a copy of the tutor report completed during the session, to illustrate your engagement with the writing process and meeting the demands of writing across disciplines.
Services are on a walk-in basis, so no appointment is necessary. Schedules are posted in the Writing Center, on Inside DelVal, and on professors' Blackboard course pages.
Tutors look forward to working with you!
