Great Basin Writing Project

Robert McGinty is the director of the Great Basin Writing Project and currently works in professional development with five counties in northeastern Nevada, where his focus with teachers is on effective strategies for teaching reading and writing across the curriculum. Prior to his work in professional development, Robert taught high school English in Elko, Nevada, for twenty-five years. Professionally and personally, he is interested in - and sometimes troubled by - the impact high-stakes testing is having on writing instruction.
