Welcome to the ERWC Online Community!

See the newly posted student writing samples with scores and commentary under Professional Learning > Writing Samples. We have cross-posted these to the Modules pages as well.

We're not done, however. See the Writing Samples page for a list of what's still coming. We need your help to collect writing samples for the modules that still lack them. We offer Barnes & Noble gift cards to our contributing teachers. Thanks!
