"Writing Workshop" features lessons for students in grades 3 – 8 because by this stage, most students are at the point where students are reading to learn rather than learning to read. By grade 3 most students are able to use their reading skills to help them work through the entire writing process of narrative, expository, and persuasive pieces. Also, the majority of the questions in the module are short answer and require students to be comfortable freely expressing their thoughts in written form.
