Spillane, Lee Ann
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v80 n2 p63-65 Nov-Dec 2006
Writing centers offer students the means to success. The Reading Writing Center (RWC) at University High School in Orlando, Florida, serves a diverse population of more than 3,700 students. The center serves dual purposes. A classroom side operates as a demonstration space where the author, who is the center's director, leads and sometimes coteaches content-based reading and writing lessons. The other side of the center is a help center run by students for students. As the center's director, the author also carries a full load of service-learning students. A description of RWC's beginnings and what it can do for teachers and students is provided. (Contains 1 figure.)
