National Writing Project 2008 Annual Report
National Writing Project (NJ1)
Writing in its many forms is the signature means of communication in the 21st century. This simple truth heightens the urgency to help all of our nation's students become strong writers and effective communicators. The National Writing Project (NWP) pursues this goal by focusing the knowledge, expertise, and leadership of the nation's educators on sustained efforts to improve writing and learning for all learners. The NWP's network of more than 200 university-based sites provides high-quality, locally designed professional development for teachers across disciplines and at all levels. This annual report features teachers who develop their students as writers. These inventive and skilled educators represent the growing number of NWP leaders with expertise in both subject matter and technology and an understanding of how each augments the other to inspire learning in the classroom. These teachers use their knowledge to strengthen student achievement and to help their teaching colleagues meet the increasing demands, and emerging opportunities, of digital literacy. [Support for the National Writing Project is provided by the U.S. Department of Education, foundations, corporations, universities, and K-12 schools.]
