Writing is flourishing at Beecher Road School through the implementation of Writer’s Workshop. The District’s goal is to help students become independent writers, readers and thinkers. To support this initiative, Beecher Road School has established a partnership with the Writer’s Institute at Columbia University. Teachers at BRS receive on-site training from Columbia consultants and participate in summer writing institutes. The results show. The quality of student writing has improved while love for writing has increased among students.
