Excerpt from Article
"We established the San Antonio Writing Project in 2006 at UTSA as a way to help local teachers improve their overall writing instruction," said Roxanne Henkin, UTSA professor in the College of Education and Human Development's Department of Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching and SAWP director. "Under the Writing Project model, teachers teach teachers. Then, the teachers who attend our seminars go back to their schools and share what they learned with their colleagues."
Educator Chris Navarro will keynote the seminar. Navarro has worked in education since 1998 as a teacher and program coordinator in schools and with non-profit organizations. He is an active participant in the Central Texas Writing Project, has lobbied on behalf of the NWP and is an advocate of charter school reform.
