Writing Workshop

All Junior School students are published writers as they cycle through the Writing Workshop program. Students work on collecting ideas in a writer’s notebook, drafting stories, revising those stories, editing drafts and finally publishing a piece. With an hour of writing time every day, our young authors learn to write in three genres – narrative, informational and opinion – throughout the year. Many of our teachers at the Junior School trained at the Reading and Writing Project at Columbia University’s Teachers College with acclaimed educator Lucy Calkins.
