About this Grantee

Collaborating with faculty from Tennessee Technical University, Mr. Schultz and Mr. Billings create “Writing and Technology,” a mentoring project among doctoral and fifth-grade students. The fifth-grade students explore different genres of literature and learn about the writing process by sharing their work with doctoral students and receiving feedback. To develop technology skills, the fifth graders also incorporate hypermedia such as digital video, photography into their writing.
