These DRAFT materials were developed by the National Writing Project TASW-F Design Team. TASW-F = Teacher Assignment Student Work-Feedback. The TASW-F Team sought to operationalize the "authentic intellectual achievement" research of Fred Newmann and his associates. The TASW-F Team piloted materials to make them more useful for teachers.

The National Writing Project will be posting final drafts of these documents on their website. Included in the NWP website will be samples of assignments and student work from teachers' classrooms and suggestions for using these materials in Writing Project sponsored professional development. In the meantime, you are welcome to use these materials as aides for coaching, lesson study, collaborative curriculum mapping, and Writing Project professional development work.
