The Press-Tribune in Roseville, California profiles a new peer-based writing center at Granite Bay Highschool:
"Lately, Granite Bay High School students have had a potent weapon in their efforts to improve their writing and take home better grades: other students.
The brainchild of English teacher David Tastor, the Granite Bay Writing Center opened last semester with a staff of around 25 juniors and seniors.
The tutors, already identified as advanced writers, enrolled in a class called 'Students Teaching Students.'" (
