Every day, in every state, in every kind of community, Writing Project teachers are making a difference in the lives of students—early childhood through university.

By teaching students not only how to write well but how to learn through writing in all disciplines, these educators are increasing their students' chances of academic and career success.

Through writing, students learn to convey ideas and solve problems. They learn to understand and engage with the world. Whether they're creating essays and poems, term papers and lab reports, or blogs and podcasts, students are developing the skills to communicate in today's digital age and compete in the 21st century.

In NWP's 2011–2012 Report, read about how Writing Project teacher-leaders study and share effective practices that enhance student writing and learning, work collaboratively with other educators, design resources, and take on new roles in effecting positive change.

Online and face-to-face, Writing Project teachers build knowledge together. Cadres of educators across subjects, geographic boundaries, and grade levels coalesce to demonstrate and discuss practice.
