Writing Commons Creates Five High School Writing Centers - Fall 2012Posted Sep. 3, 2012
The Writing Commons will participate in a funded research project designed to help area high school students transition to university-level writing. As a partner in the "Minding the Gap" project, the Writing Commons will facilitate the development of writing centers at five area high schools. "A writing center targets the root causes of students' difficulty transitioning to university writing," said Jeanne Smith, Writing Commons Director. "We help students change their beliefs and attitudes about writing, and we help them change their writing habits in ways that match what they will need to do in college."
