Our Writing Centers Network

In October 2011, the ISWP initiated a year of programming that supported the launch of a network of Teacher Consultants engaged in the creation of student-staffed writing centers in their classrooms and schools. In March 2014, the ISWP Writing Centers Network was awarded a $20,000 grant to support the expansion of its affiliated middle and high school writing centers. The group meets monthly to troubleshoot, share resources, plan programming and conference travel, and discuss the process of creating a culture of writing responsive to Core standards. If you are a Teacher Consultant interested in joining the network, please contact us.
