Summary: How writing project teacher-consultants and site-based teachers collaborated to plan professional development before, during, and after a summer writing camp.

 

Eileen Simmons, a veteran teacher-consultant from the Oklahoma State University Writing Project, describes collaboration among writing project teacher-consultants and site-based teachers to plan professional development before, during, and after a summer writing camp for students at their school. This model, which has been adapted in a variety of school settings, takes advantage of the summer months when teachers have time to interact, share ideas, plan together, and build a professional community.
