National Writing Project takes Orlando

Overheard at the National Writing Project Annual Meeting Orlando, Florida:

“What a magnificent sight: 1400 of the best teachers in the United States of America.”
NWP Board Member and Berkeley Professor Donald McQuade

“The alternative to education is catastrophe.”

“Language is the fiber that binds us to our cultural identity.”

“I am humbled to work on your behalf.” Sharon Washington, our fearless leader.

And my personal favorite:

“I would not be a published writer without the writing project. I might not be in the classroom today without the writing project.” Donalyn Miller, Writing Project Teacher Consultant and author of The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child, a terrific book which will be profiled in the next post.
