In the writers' workshop model, students participate in carefully structured peer review as well as ongoing collaboration with guiding faculty. Different writing projects grow from different prompts and emphases, both in content and in style.
Our hope is to produce, and possibly self-publish, literary journals over the course of the 2013-2014 academic year that will include material from all students in the SK middle school.
We are also in talks with Sweetland Writing Center at the University of Michigan about possible collaborations. More on all these development as they grow.
