Yale-NUS Resources for Students

These writing aids have been created by either teaching Faculty or students at Yale-NUS. The Faculty-generated materials are the result of many years’ experience of teaching and assessing written assignments: when a Faculty member finds that he/ she is writing similar comments on different student papers, he/ she often decides to create a handout on it to broadcast the message more widely. The Student-generated materials are composed by Peer Writing Tutors working with specialist Faculty. They respond to specific disciplinary writing challenges that students face in their assignments at Yale-NUS. These materials do not claim to represent an official college position on writing style and convention; they are not necessarily underpinned by any particular pedagogical creed; and they do not all speak with one voice on the same issue. Nevertheless, they speak from a breadth of experience, and I guarantee that you will pick up several useful tips if you take some time to browse!
