We believe developing writers benefit from regular practice, from collaboration with and guided support from experienced writers and teachers. All writers have more to learn, and practice, feedback, revision, and reflection are all critical to writers’ development.
Our goal is to help students become better writers, to develop abilities and practices that will transfer with them and allow them to be successful in new and varied writing contexts as they move through college and beyond.
Writing is both an activity and a subject of study, and our curriculum promotes the development of writers’ abilities and the increase in their knowledge of the nature of writing and rhetoric.
Writing is a physical and emotional and cognitive activity.
We keep all these domains in mind as we work with diverse learners and provide multiple opportunities for students to receive instruction and to practice and demonstrate what they are learning.
