The Nebraska Writing Project, a network of professional educators and affiliated writers, provides opportunities to improve, enhance and celebrate writing for classrooms and communities across Nebraska.
- • The best teachers of writing are writers themselves.
- • Teachers provide the best instruction for other teachers.
- • Anyone, no matter their ability level, can improve their writing in a supportive context with other practicing writers.
- • True school reform comes through democratic partnerships across grade levels.
- • Teachers, students and communities benefit when teachers form networks with other teachers and draw on collective expertise.
- To provide educators, through continuing Nebraska Writing Project programs, opportunities to:
- network with other teachers,
- reflect on and improve teaching, and
- act publicly to improve education in our state and region.
- To provide schools, colleges, and universities with an effective professional development model.
- To identify, celebrate, and enhance the professional roles of successful classroom teachers.
