What to Expect

You’ll meet with a fellow student (the SiR mentor) who did well in Rhetoric. The sessions are informal, and you can attend as many as you like. If you choose to attend virtually, you may be placed in a Zoom waiting room until a mentor is available; the wait should be minimal.

How to Prepare

Arrive with any Rhetoric-related questions and/or questions related to a major assignment at any stage (understanding the assignment prompt, brainstorming, deciding on a topic, researching, analyzing, drafting, revising, etc.) To receive feedback, you may be asked to email the major assignment description/draft to the SiR Leader’s University of Iowa email account. Decide if you want to give the SiR mentor permission to email your Rhetoric instructor—to briefly inform the instructor of your visit and what you worked on together.
