Professional Development

The Indiana Writing Project offers professional development opportunities for both teachers and administrators, as well as for teacher consultants. View our opportunities below.

Inservice Workshops and Training
 

National research studies have confirmed significant gains in writing performance among students of teachers who have participated in National Writing Project programs. 
 

As a local site of the National Writing Project, Indiana Writing Project believes that teachers grow as professionals by working with other trained teachers who share theory and research, purposeful pedagogical strategies, and writing experiences.
