University School Writers Impart Passion and Talent for Writing

University School - Writing FellowsThe innovative University School Writing Fellows Program is based on a model originated at Brown University that is now in place at many campuses nationwide, including NSU. The program features advanced high school writers who bring personalized writing support directly to their peers in the areas of language mechanics, organization, and content.

Currently, University School has ten writing fellows who are assigned to an English class they previously completed. The classroom English teacher discusses all writing assignments and expectations with the writing fellows who then provide students in the class with individualized tutorial sessions. The writing fellows also plan and present at least two 30-minute writing lessons per semester which are prepared with the guidance of the Writing Fellows Program advisor and the classroom English teacher. Each of these highly motivated students gain extensive editing experience, as well as the opportunity to improve their interpersonal skills and develop as writers, speakers, and educators. The University School writing fellows are also required to shadow and meet with NSU’s writing fellows regularly. Currently, the two groups are collaborating on a presentation for a National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) conference.

To learn more about the University School Writing Fellows Program please visit their blog where students share their passion and talent for writing with discussions about their experiences with the program.
