The Writing Circle

The Writing Circle explores classroom writing groups as a powerful structure for giving students the support and guidance they need.

Under the teacher's guidance, young writers can work together on all aspects of the writing process—sharing drafts of writing, responding to each other's works-in-progress, and building confidence in themselves as writers.
