Summary: Michael Weller, a teacher-consultant with the Los Angles Writing Project, details the multifaceted opportunities the writing project has provided him: a chance to teach in a young writers camp, a classroom focused on writing workshop principles, and a role as a faculty leader.



This September, my confidence and insight from my YWC experience have reinvigorated my writing instruction in my 'regular' classroom, Room 249 at Mountain View High, in the Los Angeles suburb of El Monte. In particular, I've revamped the way I introduce writing workshop, with the stamp of my CWP experience apparent throughout."
