Let’s Get 826 Digital

Welcome to 826 Digital.

826 National proudly introduces 826 Digital: Inventive Resources to Ignite a Love of Writing

826 Digital hosts a collection of Common Core aligned activities, handouts, flexible lesson plans, prompts to inspire writing anywhere, anytime, and at any price. Created by education experts, 826 Digital brings the 826 Network spirit and methodology to your home, classroom, or program.

826 Digital was created by teachers for teachers; its ever-expanding collection of Common Core aligned lessons, projects, writing prompts, and student writing bring an unconventional and engaging approach to teaching writing. All content was developed and field-tested by educators, volunteers, and students affiliated with the award-winning 826 National Network of writing and tutoring centers, including several resources from 826 co-founder and celebrated author, Dave Eggers.

826’s writing programs have always been free, so we felt it was essential that 826 Digital was in keeping with that tradition. Our aim is that this platform will reach at least 1,000 educators in its first year, not only expanding the impact of our existing chapters in places like Detroit and Los Angeles, but also engaging educators in rural communities where there may never be an 826 chapter,” said Laura Brief, 826 National’s new CEO.
