Rhode Island Writing Project
Founded in 1985 and affiliated with the National Writing Project in Berkeley, California, the Rhode Island Writing Project is a network of teachers who are dedicated to the improvement of teaching and learning in all schools. Rhode Island Writing Project teachers work in all content areas and at all grade levels, helping students become thoughtful readers and writers and connecting reading, writing and content area learning.
Reflecting the National Writing Project model of “teachers teaching teachers,” many Rhode Island Writing Project teachers are teacher consultants. In that capacity, they are leaders in their schools and school communities, and they work with teachers and administrators across the state to support school improvement goals. To date, close to 1,000 teachers in Rhode Island have participated in RIWP summer institutes and school-based programs.
