Let’s Talk About Your Writing!
The Dalton Writing Center is in full operation this academic year. Peer consultants are trained to talk with students on a variety of writing projects. From brainstorming to polishing, from speeches to research papers, consultants offer feedback at any stage of the writing process. In a one-on-one session, the consultant will ask a series of questions that help students articulate the ideas they want to communicate. Together, the consultant and student will discuss ways to achieve the goals of the writing project. Consultants will never write for students, they will never tell students what to do, and they will never replace teachers, but what they can do is offer a comfortable space for students to talk about unfinished work. You can learn more about our services and how to reserve an appointment in the video.
Dr. Spencer Fowler, CEO & Superintendent of International Programs, BDFZ Education Group, flew to Haikou from Beijing to welcome the visitors and give a passionate and inspiring presentation to the audience.
