As we celebrate teachers this week, join the #TeachMeYouDid challenge which combines the power of May the 4th--Star Wars Day--with Teacher Appreciation Week to build positive energy and momentum. This is an invitation for everyone (whether or not they are fans of Star Wars) to tell the story about a teacher or mentor in their lives who woke the Force up in them. http://teachmeyoudid.org

Improving writing and learning in our nation's schools.
Introduction
The National Writing Project focuses the knowledge, expertise, and leadership of our nation's educators on sustained efforts to improve writing and learning for all learners.

Company Overview
Writing is essential to success in school and the workplace. Yet writing is a skill that cannot be learned on the spot; it is complex and challenging. Through NWP's professional development programs, teachers in all subject areas and all grade levels learn new strategies to help their students become accomplished writers and learners.
