1 Introduction to Human Services

2 For this writing assignment, you will interview a human services worker and write a report about the agency and the worker. During the writing process, you are encouraged to collaborate twice with a tutor in the Writing Lab. 1 st visit: At least one week before the report is due, take your typed draft to the Writing Lab; your tutor will review the draft and make suggestions for revision. 2 nd visit: At least 7 days after your first visit, take your typed revision to the Lab; the same tutor will review your revision and might make some more suggestions for further revision. Note: Before you have completed your typed draft, you can come to the Writing Lab for preliminary visits to get clarification of directions, to see a sample report, etc. 2 STLCC-FV Writing Lab
