This response regards the outstanding development of my students in the writing process.
Since being involved in the Puget Sound Writing Project, I have been able to assist students delve deeper into their writing abilities. They have grown in their confidence as writers and have more ownership of the process.
The majority of the students that I teach are English Language Learners and NWP experience opens the doors to learning in a wider modality. It is my sincere hope that the National Writing Project be funded to the fullest and remain in the curriculums of our schools to better serve our students.
