GWP workshops are not one-shot performances. GWP works closely with schools to plan a cohesive series of sessions (15 to 45 hours) tailored to the needs of the attending teachers. Threads of writing process instruction are woven together with three beliefs:

  • The need for teachers to write themselves
  • The necessity of time, feedback, and ownership for young writers
  • The importance of culturally-responsive teaching

Rooted in the powerful teachers-teaching-teachers model, each workshop includes demonstration lessons that are classroom tested and research based. Programs may be offered for credit.

Session related to the following topics can be incorporated into any school-based professional development plan:

  • Teaching Writing: process and product
  • Writing to Learn in All Subject Areas
  • Assessment
  • Technology and Writing
