The purpose of these pages is to provide middle school students (about Grades 4 through 7) with links to online resources that will take them step by step through the writingprocess. The steps in this process are those used in Writer's Workshop. The pages are designed for use by an individual student or small group of students working on a project, but could also be used by a child working at home or by a whole class. There is also a page for teachers with links to additional creative writing resources and some writing projects. These pages were prepared by Barbara Larochelle as the final project for the course ED PSY 597 at the University of Alberta (site).
