Transcript of Heart of Texas Writing Project

Heart of Texas Writing Project The National Writing Project is a network of university-based sites co-directed by faculty from the local university and from K–12 schools, more than 200 local sites serve all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Sites work in partnership with area school districts to offer high-quality professional development programs for educators. WHO AND WHERE ARE WE? Directed by Randy Bomer, UT professor in the department of Language and Literacy, The Heart of Texas Writing Project is devoted to improving the teaching and learning of reading, writing, and 21st Century literacies. We also strive to make a difference in the quality of students' school experience by educating the public and communicating our values.

We provide inservice professional development to schools and districts; host day-long workshops for teachers throughout the school year; hold an intensive, invitational summer institute in the teaching of writing; sponsor summer writing camp experiences for children and teens; and support a community of dedicated and knowledgeable professionals in literacy education.
