Product Description
The intention of this study is to launch your Writer’s Workshop by building a community of writers who share, grow and learn together. Along with building community, this unit will set the guidelines and expectations of Writers’ Workshop. This unit will be about 20 days long. It will take the writer through the whole process one full time to produce one published piece. It’s important for students to see how working through the process can build a strong piece of writing.
