The Eastern Michigan Writing Project

is an associate site of the National Writing Project.

Our policies are not determined by Eastern Michigan University.

EMWP/NWP Core Principles

  • School reform should be driven by the school context, not the dictates of political or programmatic norms

  • Teachers at every level—from kindergarten through college—are the agents of reform; universities and schools are ideal partners for investing in that reform through professional development.

  • Writing can and should be taught, not just assigned, at every grade level. Professional development programs should provide opportunities for teachers to work together to understand the full spectrum of writing development across grades and across subject areas.

  • Teachers who are well informed and effective in their practice can be successful teachers of other teachers as well as partners in educational research, development, and implementation. Collectively, teacher-leaders are our greatest resource for educational reform.

 

As teachers belonging to one of the 200+ sites of the National Writing Project, we practice these principles. We are a network of teachers of all grades K-college of all subjects, who write, teach writing and improve the teaching of writing through summer institutes, teacher research, and professional development.

 


A primary mission of the EMWP is to offer high-quality, highly-practical inservice offerings to teachers and to area schools. EMWP offers many opportunities for useful and relevant professional development opportunities for schools and for individual teachers.

We extend these practices to families through our Family Literacy Initiative and to K-12 students through our summer writing camp Inkstains.

Our signature offering is the four-week Summer Invitational Institute, where teachers come together in a highly-focused, life-changing workshop to share their best methods of teaching and learn even more through individualized research.
