Young Writers Project (YWP)

The Young Writer's Project  (YWP) website (, is where we will post and work on, revise, refine, and comment on, much of our writing this year. 

Many pieces of writing that we post here will be drafts, and did not go through a formal writing process, while other pieces received teacher feedback and specific instruction in the form of a comment on the site, or a rubric handed out in class. Students will use this to share drafts and practice the skill of giving thoughtful, practical feedback. Parents, I encourage you to visit the site to see the breadth and depth of our writing and thinking as we reflect on our lives, the world we live in, and the stories and poems we read. 

 Parents, you can log in with the following information: 
    username: parent
    password: parent
