Prairie Lands Writing Project is slated to receive National Writing Project i3 grants of over $700,000 to participate in the College Ready Writing Program (CRWP). We will develop and deliver an extended, integrated professional development series during 2013-14 and 2014-2015 with our 'early' start school districts, Braymer, Breckenridge, and Hamilton, and during 2015-2016 with our 'late' start districts, Osborn, Trenton, and Winston, (targeting grades 7 – 12) related to:
(1) Improving student writing – especially argument writing as defined in the Common Core State Standards
(2) Strengthening literacy teaching—ELA teachers as well as core teachers, grades 7 – 12
(3) Developing teacher leaders with expertise to lead other teachers in literacy teaching.
