Great Bear Writing Project Invades San Antonio

Seen and heard at the National Writing Project General Session in San Antonio, Texas, where about 1000 of the best teachers on the planet annually gather in one place.

NWP is a beacon in our difficult times. . .

The mood in Washington these days?  I would say, “Cautious Euphoria.”

Testing Does Not Improve Learning.  Teachers Improve Learning.

                                           The President of a National Council of Teachers of English

A grand irony:  Many people become teachers because growing up, they find their success in school.  Unfortunately, once they enter the classroom, they are not commended very often when they are successful and are frequently criticized. 

Is there a teacher or teachers in your life who you value.  Make a difference–tell them!  And while you’re here check out our conference photos:
