Writer's Workshop is commonplace in many elementary ELAR classrooms, but the quality of the students writing improves when they have a wider audience. Even our youngest learners can learn to share, post and publish their writing. We'll show you some safe and student friendly digital tools for use by you and your students to enhance the writing experience for everyone.
