dc.description.abstract Academics across the country seem to agree that there is value in the existence of Writing Centers at the University level, but very few exist at the secondary level. Recent test scores demonstrate that more adequate writing instruction needs to be provided to High School students, and this thesis asserts that a Writing Center can answer this call to action. Through an analysis of the founding of a Writing Center in a High School on Long Island, New York, the author displays the strengths as well as shortcomings of inserting a Writing Center into such an environment. She provides a current model through which High Schools can adopt their own Writing Centers, and links the model to current scholarship. Lastly, the thesis explores the effectiveness of Writing Centers in encouraging higher order thinking as well as in answering the call of the Common Core Standards. en_US
