Abstract and Link to Report

Understanding the Effectiveness of the National Writing Project

(Slide presentation)


Dr. Mark St. John, Dr. Laura Stokes, Inverness Research Inc.


This is a slide presentation prepared for the 2011 Spring Meeting of the National Writing Project, held March 31-April 1 in Washington, D.C. The presentation uses data from Summer Institute participant surveys, the annual site profile, the NWP legacy study, and the Local Site Research Initiative to demonstrate the effectiveness of the National Writing Project in providing high quality professional development that translates into improved student writing. The presentation explains that the national network infrastructure and improvement community that the NWP has built up is what enables the more than 200 local sites to develop teacher leadership and serve local teachers in every state. The presentation also explains how the NWP cost-efficiently leverages federal funds to serve the nation's teachers, and explains why federal funding is vitally important to its ability to continue providing services.

Intended Audience

The National Writing Project, Federal, State, and Local Policy Makers, Funders, Educators, Teachers, Reform Leaders, and general public.
