Professional Development in Writing Instruction

CBWP offers high quality professional development in writing instruction. We base our work on the model of the National Writing Project, which has a proven track record of success in improving student writing. As a local organization, CBWP can maintain long term support for area teachers and schools wanting to implement significant curricular change in writing.

We offer two kinds of Professional Development:
1) Individual events open to any educator in the Coastal Bend.
