“Teachers, coaches and principals are always looking for better resources to strengthen their work in classrooms. We support that work by putting up important and useful resources that change throughout the year. We have examples of the sort of writing that students at every grade level, K-8, did during last year’s units of study. The samples selected represent good work from the widest possible range of students. We also have many lists of recommended books. In addition, we have tools that you can use to assess your students’ growth in writing and reading.” -taken from reading and writing project homepage
