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.
Each 3-credit course is part of our
