(After CWP and CWPII) I have unconsciously become a resource for my colleagues at school. I have unique lessons and techniques to share with others, and when I question how I’m teaching writing, I can go back to my own notebook of writing from the past summers to ground myself and my teaching. I’m aching for my colleagues to experience CWP, see the potential, and understand what I’m talking about when I suggest writer’s workshop.–Katie Clark, Salida High School, Salida, CO
The Colorado Writing Project forever changed the way I taught (and learned) writing in my classroom. Our young people have so much to say, and the writers workshop not only gives them a voice, but shapes them into articulate, well-crafted writers and thinkers who can use a variety of text types and audiences to articulate their ideas most effectively. I highly recommend going through the CWP experience!
Great first week in Steamboat Springs!
We had an awesome last day celebration today. We laughed, we cried, we reveled in each other’s words. Thank you to the entire group–I loved every moment working with you over the last two weeks.
