We Are Here to Help You Become a Better Writer, Researcher, Designer, Creator
Staffed by certified English teachers and student peer-tutors who are available almost every period* of the school day to help you with your writing, Room 212 is the place to be for writing. (Spring Semester 2020: Not 4th; and only 2nd and 5th by appointment).
- We coach students on how to plan, generate, organize, research, draft, develop, refine, proofread, and revise their ideas.
- We work with teachers to include the writing process in their curricular units. We team teach mini-units on the writing process geared to your curriculum.
- We conference one-to-one with students by listening, paraphrasing, perception-checking, leading, interpreting, questioning, observing, modeling, and telling.
- We cater to students at their ability level as they grapple with writing assignments and projects. A long-standing axiom of Writing Center philosophy: "Our job is not to make better writing, but to make better writers."
- What We Don't Do: We don't proof, correct, revise, or grade writing or do it for the student. We are not a "paper mill," "grammar academy," or "fix-up shop."
We love writing, finding things out, and creating things. Stop by and ask for our assistance. It's why were here.
