Abstract: In this paper, we present a collaboration between writing professors and an information systems (IS) professor to scaffold case analysis writing at an American English-medium branch campus in the Middle East. We describe our process for revising the professor’s writing assignment to make his expectations more explicit and for creating scaffolding materials that we delivered in classroom workshops to assist students’ pre-writing. We provide insights about the positive impact of the writing workshops on students’ writing from an end-of-semester interview with the professor and from interviews with students about their perceptions of the workshops and the personalized feedback they received.
