Cahill to Help Students with Writing Assignments
Haley Macray, Veritas Senior Managing Editor
On Tuesday, September 29, the Rockland High School Guidance Department announced that Carol Cahill, RHS’s English Department Chair, has started a Writing Lab for students. The Writing Lab will be available to students during their lunch periods with some exceptions as seen in the schedule below.
“The main goal is for there to be a place where students can get one on one instruction from a teacher to help strengthen their writing skills,” says Ms. Cahill, “Sometimes during a class, it is difficult for each student to get enough individual attention from their teacher. A staffed Writing Lab is an opportunity for that to happen.”
Ms. Cahill believes that, “There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution to helping someone become a better, stronger writer,” and that is why she hopes to help students with their difficulties by “looking at their work to identify the strengths and weaknesses and [going] from there.”
If you need a little extra help with your writing, this new program is definitely a resource for you to check out.
