Overview

Self-reported by organization

NWP is a network of nearly 200 university-based sites serving all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Co-directed by faculty from the local university and K-12 Schools, each NWP site develops a leadership cadre of teachers through an invitational summer institute, and designs and delivers customized professional development programs in the teaching of writing for local schools, districts, and higher education institutions. Each year NWP trains 3,000 new teacher-leaders, engages with another 120,000 educators across the U.S., and, through those educators, reaches 1.4 million students.
 
Over the years of its development, the NWP has created a signature model of inquiry-driven professional development that includes examining best practices, engaging in the discipline under study, developing strategies to meet the literacy needs of individual students, and learning from research in the field.

National Writing Project

National Writing Project teachers conduct project-sponsored programs in their own schools and in neighboring schools and districts. They attend to two purposes: developing teacher knowledge and leadership in their home communities and putting this knowledge and leadership to work to improve student achievement. Collectively, across 50 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, NWP sites conduct more than 7,000 programs annually.
