National Writing Project

General Description

Writing is essential to communication, learning, and citizenship.

It is the currency of the new workplace and global economy.

Writing helps us convey ideas, solve problems, and understand our changing world.

Writing is a bridge to the future.

The National Writing Project is a great resource for all things writing. This is not just for the English or writing teachers. The resources available online has to do with Professional Development, teaching writing, teaching reading, research, teacher research/inquiry, standards and assessment, policy and reform, and becoming a writer.

I learned about a website called Figment at the NCTE conference but learned so much more about using it effectively in the classroom through the NWP website.
