Creating Reflective Teacher-Practitioners in the Midst of Standards
Mullin, Joan; Cashell, Dorothy
Writing Instructor, Sep 2007
This article examines in detail the Ohio WINS (Writing Institute Network for Success), a program whose goal is to provide continuing education for teachers. The aim of the program is to use up-to-date research to help teachers improve students' critical thinking and to better prepare them for both the rigorous Ohio Graduation Tests (OGTs) and college. With the Ohio Academic Standards at the heart of its inception, the summer program immerses the teachers in current writing and educational theories, giving participants real opportunities to evaluate and integrate the state guidelines into research based practices for their classrooms.
