Writing 


At Academic Horizons, our approach to helping students develop their writing skills involves collaborating with learners in ways that facilitate the process of writing.


In a supportive, encouraging one-one environment, there is more opportunity to engage learners in discussions that help them formulate ideas aloud, as well as learn and experiment with using writing strategies and techniques.  

Research tells us few students are interested in incorporating feedback to improve their writing once they have received their grade on a final, polished composition.


Written comments received by students at the end of their writing process rarely have as great an impact on students’ writing development as teachers intend.


The one on one learning environment at Academic Horizons allows time for meaningful application of feedback, with support; students are guided through the revision and editing process, while they are writing. 


During writing tutorial sessions, students receive both criterion-based feedback and reader-based feedback which supports the development of writing skills and nurtures confidence in writing.


  

Criterion-based feedback indicates how well writing meets the criteria of grade level assessment rubrics and scoring guides. This feedback refers to features such as level of detail, clarity of communication through organization of ideas, and effective use of language. Reader-based feedback identifies images visualized, emotions evoked, and how well writing achieves the intended purpose - entertain, inform, persuade.
