PowerPoint Presentation

The goals of the Writing Centre are to:

  • Facilitate the process that leads a student to be a better writer,
  • Help students become better at identify problem sports in their own writing,
  • Create a customized session for each student, focusing on writing concerns such as organization, argument development, supporting claims, specifics of working within an academic genre, audience awareness, and developing critical thinking,
  • Help students become better editors of their own work, and
  • Help students gain confidence in their writing ability.

What we don’t do

  • We do not proofread or edit student’s papers.
  • Instead, we will work with students to help them learn about writing, discover areas in which writing can improve, and learn about how to resolve issues in their writing.
  • We do not promise a good grade.
  • We are not the grades of papers.
