National Writing Project Annual Report 1996-1997.
Barber, Roxanne, Ed.
The first annual report in the project's 24-year history, this report describes aspects of the National Writing Project (NWP), a nationwide education program that works to improve student writing and thinking by improving the teaching of writing in U.S. schools. The report notes that each year more than 100,000 teachers in 45 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico come together in the summer, on weekends, and at the end of the school day to learn from other successful teachers how to improve their own teaching of writing. The report discusses how the NWP works, the kinds of programs conducted, what teachers say about the NWP, how NWP teachers serve as leaders, how the work of the NWP network is extended, a map of the NWP network, the NWP in print and online, two NWP teacher profiles, sources of NWP site funding, and cost effectiveness. Financial statements and a list of board of directors and senior staff is attached. (RS)
