The Nottingham Exemplary Writing Project was carefully designed to develop the writing skills of young authors through the power of publication. When young writers know their words will be shared by an audience, they are motivated to do their best work.

During the year, students explore many literary genres including pattern books, poetry, personal narrative, fiction, and nonfiction. They are encouraged to use sensory details and strong vocabulary in their writing. Writing models are provided through classroom read-alouds and mini-lessons. With the help of classroom teachers and the Exemplary Project Coordinator, Kelly Bergeron, each student edits at least one favorite piece to post on the Nottingham website.

By the end of the year, each student will choose one piece to be included in a grade level anthology. These magazines will be printed and posted online as the Nottingham Knight Writer. For more information about the 2013-14 Nottingham Knight Writer, please visit a detailed description here.
 
The Nottingham Knight Writer is edited by Kelly Bergeron, Nottingham's Exemplary Project Coordinator. Ms. Bergeron works individually and in groups with Nottingham students to revise and polish their writing for publication online and in the Knight Writer magazines.
