Staff Development: College, Career & Community Writers Program & Assessment
College, Career, Community Writers Program
OWP will lead professional development focused on NWP’s nationally recognized College, Career, Community Writers Program (C3WP). In this PD, teachers participate in 30-45 hours of training around source-based argument writing instruction and civic discourse. This professional development includes year-long formative assessment structures, classroom teaching, and instructional resources for teachers and students. Available for Grades 4-12.
Writing Assessment and Evaluation
OWP writing assessment workshops train teachers to use writing assessment as an instructional tool. They provide practical classroom strategies for evaluating student writing and improving student learning. Depending on the needs of the district, the focus can be on either formative or summative classroom assessment (i.e. formative assessment practices, assessment of writing, short cycle assessments, rubrics, portfolios or state tests.)
Ohio Writing Project
The Ohio Writing Project is a site of the National Writing Project at Miami University. OWP is a network of K-12 teachers, university faculty, researchers, and writers working to advance writing and the teaching of writing.
