NWP Radio—Unpacking the NWP Social Practices Framework: Write

July 12, 2018

The third in a six-part series discussing a set of social practices embedded in NWP-style teacher leadership, this episode examines the practice of writing. NWP teacher leaders know that when teachers write for others in their profession they are taking on a form of leadership and embracing a means for advocating for the value of teacher classroom inquiry and reflective practice. In this episode we will talk to teacher-writers and look at various ways that Writing Project sites can support writing teachers in becoming teachers who write.
