Open Programs 2013
The Oregon Writing Project at Willamette University offers a variety of on-campus and on-line programming each school year and during the summer. These workshops aim to support teachers in the improvement of student writing and the use of writing to learn across the curriculum. Facilitated by qualified Teacher Consultants from the Oregon Writing Project at Willamette University, this program provides high quality professional development for teachers through a "teachers teaching teachers" model that focuses on inquiry into best practices. Participants will be engaged in exploring and adapting exemplary teaching practices for their classroom, as well as writing and talking with experienced classroom teachers.
Teachers can join on-going sessions as available. Workshop hours can be applied to PDU’s. Graduate credit options are often available. Schools and districts may arrange on-site programs according to their needs, size, and resources.
Upcoming programs include:
