Note from a Teacher
Just wanted to send you a writing update for our 8th grade. We received our state scores for the Tennessee Writing Assessment, and "ya'll" would be so proud. The scores range from one to six; four is passing; six being excellent. In our 8th grade we had 1 - zero (who refused to write), 1 - one (who wrote a few words and slept), and 3 - three's. The other scores were as follows: 21 - six's, 96 - five's, and 104 – four’s.
These are the best scores Hunter has ever had, and I believe it is Writing Workshop and YOU that have made the difference in our scores. Thank you for the time you have spent learning to do what you do so we can all be better at what we do.

The Project is eager to work with all different types of schools—public, charter, and private—in surrounding suburbs, districts across the US, and distant corners of the world, as well as with schools in New York City. Requests exceed our capacity but we regularly forge relationships with new schools and are eager to talk with you about that possibility. Priority is usually given to schools in which the indicators are strong that the work will be deep and long lasting enough to support sustainable reform.
