Who We Are
The Rhode Island Writing Project is a community of writers where the voices of teachers and students are heard, acknowledged, and valued. We provide a safe space for teachers and students to share ideas and develop new understandings about teaching and learning. Our aim is to prepare educators and their students to thrive in a global society where communication—reading, writing, speaking, and listening—is of paramount importance.
The mission of the Rhode Island Writing Project is to improve writing, reading, and learning in Rhode Island's schools. Our professional development model recognizes the primary importance of teacher knowledge, expertise, and leadership. Our work is grounded in the belief that the professional growth of teachers is essential to the growth of students.
