CRWP 2017 Open Institute for College-Ready Writers – Web The National Writing Project’s College-Ready Writers Program answers the contemporary call for respectful argumentative discourse. The instructional resources help teachers and students read critically, explore multiple points of view, and finally take a stand on important issues.  

A national program, the College Ready Writers Program has proven to have  a positive, statistically significant effect on the four attributes of student argument writing—content, structure, stance, and conventions. In particular, students demonstrated greater proficiency in the quality of reasoning and use of evidence in their writing.

Join us for a three-day workshop that introduces significant concepts from this curriculum to teachers in grades 6-12 (flyer). 

The $100 registration fee includes three days with a continental breakfast and boxed lunch, as well as a copy of Joseph Harris’s book, Rewriting: How to Do Things with Texts. All sessions will be facilitated by K-12 teacher consultants affiliated with the Chippewa River Writing Project.  18 SCECHs will available for an additional $25 (pending approval).
