Illinois Writing Project

The Illinois Writing Project (IWP) provides professional development on teaching writing, reading, and the application of both skills for learning across the curriculum and across whole schools.

The Illinois Writing Project offers in-depth staff development on composition and other elements of language arts for all grade levels across the curriculum. We develop teacher leaders and help insure that instructional improvements spread throughout a school and sustain themselves long-term.
