Writing Center

    1. What is the Abraham Lincoln High School Writing Center?

      It is a place where Lincoln students can go to get help and support for any type of writing assignment at any stage of the writing process. The writing center is run by two English teachers and trained peer-tutors.

    2. How do I get help in the writing center?

      You can either make an appointment by signing up ahead of time in room TB15 or TB14 or you can drop by after school during tutoring hours: Monday and Wednesday for one hour after 6th period and one hour after 7th period.

    3. What do I bring?

      Bring the teacher's assignment, any needed handouts, books, questions, anything you've written so far, a positive attitude, and a desire to improve your writing.

    4. What should I expect?

      Expect to fill out a "Writing Center Record" when you arrive before you meet with a tutor. Then you will meet with a peer writing tutor to discuss your writing assignment. Expect to discuss and examine the assignment, any work you've completed so far, your ideas, your organization, your evidence, your clarity of presentation. Do not expect tutors to be "proofreaders" or to write the assignment for you. Do not expect to leave with a "perfect" product. Expect tutors to be resourceful, supportive, active listeners who want to help you improve your writing. Expect to be with a tutor for a minimum of 15 minutes.
