About Us

The Nova Scotia Writing Exemplars, Grades One to Eight website

A collaborative and ongoing project


Nova Scotia Regional School Boards and the Nova Scotia Department of Education

Nova Scotia writing exemplars provide teachers, students and families with tangible evidence of the levels of student writing at grades one to eight. They reveal pathways for studentsí continued growth as writers. Teachers and families support individual studentsí writing development by valuing student writing, and providing the instructional supports of time and opportunity to write using a writing process and the integration of appropriate technology.
