 The Bay Area Writing Project

Join us for a week of mornings writing, sharing, reflecting, reading, and revising. Become a better writer and a better teacher of writing. This workshop offers rich opportunities for teachers at all grade levels and any writing experience level to explore a range of writing genres and practical, classroom-tested writing strategies. The workshop fosters a warm and encouraging community of writers where participants read inspiring models, collaborate in small groups and collect ideas and materials for teaching. This year we’ll feature strategies for information and argument writing, reflected in the Common Core Standards. This class sits solidly on the Bay Area Writing Project’s belief that teachers become better teachers of writing by writing themselves. Participants contribute to an in-class anthology.
