Inservice Education and Teacher Change: A Study of Writing Project Graduates.
Wilson, David E.
In the eleven years since its inception, over four thousand teachers from all grade levels and content areas have studied in the Iowa Writing Project's summer institutes. This paper reports on a study on the ways in which the project influences teachers' beliefs and practices. The study was conducted by means of surveys, interviews, case studies, and over 70 hours of classroom observation with participants in the project. Results of the study support the assertion that participation in the Iowa Writing Project can and does change teachers' beliefs and practices about writing and the teaching of writing. (JD)
