Student-Run Writing Centers at High Schools

This just in from Amber Jensen:

Hi all,

I wanted to pass along some exciting exposure of high school writing centers in the national media:

Four high school writing centers in Northern Virginia -- the Edison, Centreville, McLean and Oakton High School Writing Centers, will be featured on the National Writing Project (NWP) Radio at 7 pm EST on Thursday, February 28, 2013.

Listen in to hear tutors, directors, and principals from these schools talk about how the high school writing center movement in Northern Virginia builds leadership opportunities and impacts writing school-wide. This show does a great job showing the energy and results of high school writing centers from multiple perspectives. We hope you will listen in and contribute to the chat room conversation!

The show will also be available in mp3 format after tonight if you can’t tune in live. I will send along the link on Friday.
