Does Project-Based Writing Have to Be All-or-Nothing?

E08980_PRATHER_BOOKCOVER_MG5D6855.jpg

In project-based writing, students manage their writing project from pitches and proposals to project goals and everything in between. The process remains wholly the student’s, including the final product, from conception to rendering to delivery. You don't need to adopt Project-Based Writing wholesale in order to incorporate the methods, ideas and strategies project-based writing can provide. 

Here, Prather explains what this process can look like. Maybe you'd like to incorporate pitches into the writing process, or maybe your students need more help with scheduling and time management. Whatever your needs or constraints may be, there's something to be gained from exploring the benefits of project-based writing.
