Writing & Reading Supplemental Learning Assistance
SLAs are offered in three different ways:
- Instructor-led Workshops
- Tutor-led Directed Study Groups (DSGs)
- Directed Learning Activities (DLAs)
*Students are encouraged to try all three formats.
Classes Offering SLA
The following English and Reading classes have an SLA requirement:
- English 801A, 801B, 105
- Read 881, 883, 82, and 83
Directed Learning Activities, also known as DLAs, are individual activities that do not require appointments, but students should plan for a minimum of one hour to work through an activity and follow up with an instructor and/or tutor one-on-one.
DLAs are tailored to each English (105 & 801) and Reading course level (83, 82, 883, 881), so students must ask for the appropriate level. Student ID or student ID number and a picture ID are required.
**Please note that WRSC staff stops handing out DLAs one hour before closing. **No more than one DLA per subject may be completed per day.
