Centre instructors are occasionally asked to “proofread” assignments, but like
all other university and college Writing Centres, we don’t correct an
assignment that students will then submit for grading. Instead we offer active,
instructional editing. This method involves helping students understand and
correct errors in a paragraph or two. Faculty will guide students through this
process, helping them with the corrections. Our goal in the Writing Centre is
to empower students to proofread and edit their own work.
