What are we all about?

Who is our project associated with?

Our study is funded by a federal grant given to us by the Institute of Education Sciences in order to study middle school students’ writing in North Carolina. We are housed at the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill, School of Medicine, in the Department of Allied Health Sciences.

How long is the project?

Students participate in the project for one year, during 6th grade. However, the Middle School Writing Project in its entirety is a 4 year project.
