Welcome to the Write On Project! Write On is a collaborative writing project involving ten classes of third, fourth, and fifth grade students around the United States. This project was created by Ann (Farmer) Carnevale, Instructional Technology Specialist in Plainville, CT.  In the Write On project ten classes write and illustrate a story, hosted on PBWiki, and password protected for teacher editing. The purpose of this story is to expand writing skills, utilizing 21st Century Learning Tools for communication. This activity will also allow for an exploration of regions as students track the location and regional information of participating schools.


Here's how it works… Ten classes will be selected to participate in each project.  A schedule will be developed and mailed to each participating teacher, as well as posted on the Wiki. The lead fourth grade classes from Plainville will write three paragraphs in the Wiki to begin a story, one paragraph per fourth grade classroom.  Students will create a picture (computer generated, or digital image of hand drawn picture) to illustrate their paragraphs.  One picture will be chosen for inclusion in the Wiki, and uploaded. The next class has one week to post two more paragraphs and a picture. This continues until all classes have added their two paragraphs and picture.


Additionally, there will be a Wiki page for each class to share information about their state or region.  Plainville fourth graders spend much of the school year studying regions and biomes.  The information shared by other classes will help them in their studies.


The Instructional Technology Specialist from Plainville, Ann (Farmer) Carnevale, will be available by email (carnevalea@plainvilleschools.org), Skype, and telephone to assist all participating classes with any questions regarding the use of the Wiki.
