Project: Writing the Future
The aim of Ms. Beaumont’s project is to build strong foundational writing skills in students and give them the tools that they will need to be lifelong writers. Through the project, a writing culture that integrates writing into all subject areas. Students will be provided with resources and challenged to apply a variety of skills and strategies designed to increase the quality and effectiveness of their writing. They will also make use of technology resources as they work to digitally publish their writing. The project will culminate with a writing festival where students will celebrate the art of writing and will showcase their best work to invitees- parents, administrators, community members, and local authors!
