Directed Learning Activities (DLAs)

DLAs can  improve specific areas of your writing . You may also be asked by a professor to complete specific DLAs, but you can also complete them for yourself!

You can print your DLA out from the list below.  Some DLAs require quizzes, as indicated.  If you meet with a tutor online, you can verify your quiz score by taking a screenshot or by uploading a readable cell phone photo of the results.  This image can be uploaded to the appointment window in the schedule. 

You can  schedule an appointment with a tutor on WC Online if you need help with a particular DLA or if you need proof of completion of a DLA for one of your assignments. Proof of completion will be provided once tutors have reviewed the DLA with you and verified completion and understanding of the concepts.
