Today, more than ever, writing is essential to success in school and the workplace, a critical component of communicating, learning, and participating in an increasingly connected and complex global society.
For over 25 years, the Penn State Lehigh Valley Writing Project (LVWP) has been helping local teachers across all disciplines and grades improve the teaching of writing and learning in their schools and communities. A member site of the National Writing Project (NWP), LVWP provides professional development that leverages the expertise of outstanding teacher-leaders to provide participants with the most current, classroom-tested, best practices in teaching writing and literacy.
Develop a deeper understanding of how the PA Core Standards in literacy impact classroom practices. Through an exploration of the PA Core, uncover the curricular possibilities of the three modes (argumentative, informative, narrative) across all content areas and learn how to integrate them through classroom writing at any grade.
