Eighth grade girls, as part of their language arts class, were surveyed regarding attitudes toward the writing workshop experience in the fall of 1999 and the spring of 2000. Survey data, collected from forced-choice and open-ended items, included comparison to the American Association of University Women's (1990) study, attitudes related to the school environment, and the effects of writing workshop. Descriptive statistics found significance in the areas of academic self-esteem, attitudes toward teacher feedback, attitudes toward the writing workshop environment, perceptions of writing competency, and attitudes toward writing workshop teacher feedback. Recommendations for educators based on survey findings have been included.
