The Connecticut Writing Project at Storrs

The CWP-Storrs, a site of the National Writing Project, was established at the University of Connecticut in 1982. The CWP offers opportunities for professional growth to teachers in all disciplines who recognize the worth of using writing as a means of learning any subject matter. Improving writing skills improves thinking skills and thus leads to higher levels of achievement in all areas. In addition, the CWP offers services to school districts including single professional development sessions, workshops series, on-site literacy coaching, and writer-in-residence programs.
