: Capturing the Story of NWP:1974–1991

3:00pm - 5:00pm Sheraton, Mezzanine Level, Philadelphia Ballroom

Teachers and directors, please help us make history! If you became involved with NWP any time from 1974 through 1991, come share your experiences. We’re gathering data on how teacher practices, teacher leadership, and teacher research were shaped by participation in NWP during those early years. Join our discussion as we record your stories of the writing in your classroom and the classrooms of your colleagues. Anyone interested in the history of NWP may observe the discussion.
