About this Grantee

By studying Writers’ Workshop, Mr. Matier and his colleagues seek to narrow the achievement gap for the school’s Hispanic learners. Writers’ Workshop emphasizes the development of a common philosophy and approach to the teaching of writing and engages both students and teachers in authentic writing. In the study group, participants craft instructional practices that enable all students to become accomplished and prolific writers.
