This book tells the story of how Georgia-based National Writing Project teachers and their students used the study of their community to build their own community—one committed to the stewardship of communal spaces and ideas. The book details the students' inquiry-based studies of topics as diverse as the area's Cherokee heritage and the redevelopment of Atlanta. Readers will be inspired to help their own students create engaging projects that take literacy from an isolated skill to a socially relevant enterprise. (Copublished with Teachers College Press)
