Services offered through SAWP:

  • Invitational Institute: intensive deep inquiry seminar in which teachers examine their classroom practices, study the latest research about teaching writing, develop their identities as a writer, and become leaders within an expanding network of a diverse writing community.
  • Development Workshops: shorter sessions tailored to a variety of specific teacher interests, varying in length, topic, focus, and delivery method (online, in-person, etc.). At the center of all workshops is a focus on the best in contemporary theory and practice and a belief in active participation to support teachers as they build skills in both teaching and writing.
  • Inservice Programs: custom designed professional development packages based on meeting specific district goals and needs that are grounded in research and current professional literature and provide practical classroom-tested strategies in reading, writing and assessment practices.
  • Youth Outreach and Engagement: opportunities that afford student participation in writing initiatives that develop the critical, creative, and collaborative skills required by citizens to help the broader good of the community in which they are a part. These initiatives encompass diverse communication processes including the use of technology, which are imperative to critical media literacies and new literacy studies.
