Best Practices

826 Writers’ Rooms are dedicated third spaces housed within partner schools where students immerse themselves in the writing craft, build their writing skills, and explore the depths of their imaginations on the page in a creative, supportive environment. We have seen firsthand how the Writers’ Room program benefits students in writing skills, social and emotional learning, creativity, leadership, and so much more. Now, we have external research to back up our observations. Drawing on research conducted by Northeastern University, this report provides evidence of positive outcomes and details the essential elements of a Writers’ Room so that students and schools everywhere can experience what makes these writing spaces so special.
