Writing Center Reflection Form
To the student:
Before your appointment, think about what you’d like help with. Our writing advisors can help you with global issues that affect your entire composition (such as depth and thoroughness of arguments, clarity of thesis, organization, thesis, and support) and local issues that affect individual sentences (such as syntax, grammar, and punctuation). Your writing advisor will be best able to use the time allotted for your session if you provide him or her with specific global and/or local issues that you would like some help with. Advisors would prefer to work on global issues if they exist because those affect the entire piece of writing.
Bring your assignment sheet with you so your writing advisor can understand the assignment’s requirements and can examine how closely your rough draft meets the criteria. If your assignment involves conducting research, either bring your source material with you or be prepared to find it online during your session.
After your appointment, write a summary of the session and your advisor’s advice. What did you work on in your session? What are the primary issues your advisor identified? How will you address these issues as you continue to revise and work toward the final draft?
