  Project Overview

Our school would like to become part of this already existing STELLAR school project.

As part of the enrichment program at our school small groups of students are pulled out from regular classes to participate in enrichment activities in various subject areas at the three different grade levels. At the grade Nine level a group of 15 students has been participating in the English enrichment by completing various writing activities. By participating in this project these students would be able to post their writing to the Writers’ Network for peer evaluation and critique. In addition, they would post the final edited version of their work on our school’s home page so that students in successive years could access and critique these writings.
