Publications and Presentations

As the Middle School Writing Project is a federally funded research project, we like for people to know a bit about what we're doing! Here are some of our other publications and presentations that we hope can help you understand a little bit more about what we're doing, why we're doing it, and the research supporting our efforts. Please check back for updates on publications, as we are constantly writing!
