Workshops & In-services

National Writing Project professional development engages and energizes teachers while improving students' experience with writing. Research confirms the positive impacts of NWP professional development for teachers and students.

As the Minnesota site of the NWP, we believe that teachers are valuable sources of information for each other, both in the classroom and in leadership positions. The Minnesota Writing Project draws on teachers' knowledge, passion, and experience to provide hands-on, innovative professional development relevant to today's educational contexts. We provide unique professional development that is tailored to schools and their students, as well as offering workshops such as those listed below.

In addition, we are available to confer with schools and districts to assess schools' needs and develop progamming to meet those needs.
