Kentucky Statewide Writing Program. Innovations.
This pamphlet describes the Kentucky Statewide Writing Program, initiated in 1986 by then-Governor Martha Layne Collins and the Kentucky General Assembly to create student and teacher interest in learning to write and developing writing skills. Following an introduction to the program and background information, the pamphlet describes the four components of the program: the National Writing Project Sites; the Pilot Writing Projects; the Regional Writing Workshops; and the "Writing across the Curriculum" Conference. It concludes with discussions of program transferability to other states, evaluation, and future outlook. (RS)
