We are an affiliate of the National Writing Project and one of sixteen sites of the California Writing Project. Teacher Consultants from the Cal State Northridge Writing Project work with teachers, schools, and local districts to improve student writing and learning. Download a copy of our brochure for an overview of the Cal State Northridge Writing Project and our programs, and share it with colleagues.
Our work with schools and districts has included providing ISAW professional development for English teachers from the Green Dot Schools and training of the trainers sessions in disciplinary literacies and the California Common Core State Standards for Lancaster High School. In addition, a $20,000 SEED grant from the National Writing Project supports our on-going literacy-through-the-disciplines work at Valley Academy of Arts and Sciences in response to the literacy requirements of the Common Core State Standards. More information about in-service offerings HERE.
We are excited about the many opportunities to improve writing and the teaching of writing in our service area. Please email us if you have suggestions for our Web site, ideas about programs you would like to see come to the Cal State Northridge Writing Project, or if you would like us to add your contact information to our email list.
If you are a Teacher Consultant from another Writing Project and interested in working with us, please send us an email, giving your name, professional affiliation, and your home Writing Project.
