Fels, Dawn, Ed.; Wells, Jennifer, Ed.
Teachers College Press
This book highlights the work of talented writing center teachers who share practices and lessons learned from today's most important high school writing centers. The authors offer innovative methods for secondary educators who deal with adolescent literacy, English language learners, new literacies, embedded professional development, and differentiated instruction. The Successful High School Writing Center demonstrates how writing centers help school communities grapple with the realities that come with literacy education. Depicting real-life writing centers as leaders in literacy education, the accounts presented will enrich the work of secondary educators, writing tutors, and student writers in socially significant ways. This book features: (1) Models of writing centers and literacy centers that explicitly integrate reading and writing across the curriculum; (2) Creative strategies from a diversity of schools, models, and students served; (3) Literacy-based, collaborative research projects for writing center evaluation; and (4) Helpful forms.
