What is a writing center?
Writing centers are spaces dedicated for students to receive help on their writing, which may be for any of their classes or for any purpose outside of school. In general, writing centers can take on a variety of formats. The Wildcat Writing Center at Lake View is staffed by trained student tutors who offer one-on-one support to all students at all levels in all grades. Our helpful tutors serve as coaches and collaborators that, through a variety of collaborative techniques, assist students in further developing their own writing. Because of the one-on-one format, students are able to receive individualized feedback and guidance that meets their specific needs. Ultimately, writing centers serve their schools and communities as places for discussion and development of everyone’s writing skills in a highly collaborative and supportive setting.
