Writing includes the connection I have to other writers-and especially the writers from CUWP.

About

Central Utah Writing Project (CUWP) is affiliated with the National Writing Project and serves as a resource to help Utah teachers become more proficient teachers and writers. It is modeled after practices originating with the Bay Area Writing Project, founded by Jim Gray in 1974. CUWP is housed at Brigham Young University and serves the school districts throughout central Utah.

The model of the NWP is one that values teacher knowledge and facilitates sharing knowledge and resources.

In CUWP, teachers can expect to work with other teachers who are interested in improving students’ writing and their own writing instruction. And teachers can expect to have fun doing it!
