Osterman, Ed
National Writing Project (NJ1)
This monograph describes and analyzes the particular processes and structures that the New York City Writing Project (NYCWP) directors and on-site teacher-consultants have developed that enable them to support and learn from each other and to reflect critically upon the work they do with teachers, students, and administrators. Over time the regularity of weekly meetings has supported the growth of the teacher-consultants who have participated and ensured the sustainability and continuity of the site's work, becoming a fundamental building block for maintaining and replenishing a group of teacher-consultants who can fulfill NYCWP's professional development goals.
