Nebraska Writing Project teacher consultants are available for inservice programs. Teacher consultants will design inservice offerings based on the needs of the individual school. Most inservice programs involve the sharing of effective best practices from the teacher consultant’s own classroom, connected to the target goals of the host school.
Key elements of NeWP inservice:
- Basic cost is $100/hour/NeWP teacher consultant.
- Most programs need to be conducted after school or during the evening.
- Basic program assumes one NeWP teacher consultant for every 12 participants (teachers, para-educators, counselors, or administrators).
- Nebraska Writing Project will match the host school with teacher consultants in the network with demonstrated expertise in the target writing objective.
Past one hour inservices have covered such topics as poetry writing for at risk secondary students, digital storytelling based on community interviews, scaffolding personal narrative writing for 4th grade, and inquiry writing across the curriculum. With over 1200 active, experienced teachers in the Nebraska Writing Project network, we have many areas of writing expertise to share.
