Maine Writing Project

Classroom Context

Most of the students' work takes place during class time, with the exception of some of the initial writing that takes place both in and out of class. That writing typically undergoes more than five revisions in a process that helps students condense their work, as well as enrich it through vivid imagery, strong description, and lively voice. Project design is geared toward helping students refine communication or relate learning gleaned from literature or research to a genuine audience.
