"The site has helped me get to know my students better; that allows me to be more effective as a teacher." -- 7/8 science teacher
Welcome to the Young Writers Project digital classroom platform. This is free to select partner schools (just ask) and is designed to promote student interaction, commenting and revision. It is designed for teachers to keep track of work, create exercises or assignments and learn much more about each of their students, while adapting technique to assist students individually.
The site has several exciting features that add to student engagement and teacher effectiveness, including direct audio recording, private messaging and annotations between teacher and student.
This platform helps teachers focus instruction around idea formation, revision, civil discourse and integration of multimedia. The platform intuitively fosters respectful peer-to-peer conversation, critical thinking, creativity in all types of writing in all curricula. It is a 'creative management systems' with several key ways that help teachers -- and students -- organize and view work.

This site is also a civil, respectful place for students to share work and informally help each other outside the school.
