Through the process of teachers teaching teachers, Marshall University Writing Project focuses the knowledge, expertise, and leadership of local educators on sustained professional growth that enhances writing, thinking, and learning for all.
Marshall University Writing Project envisions 21st century literacies as vehicles to motivate all persons to understand the relevance of being lifelong learners in a digital, interconnected world.
WHO WE ARE
As a site of the National Writing Project, Marshall University Writing Project (MUWP) is a network of practicing Pre-K through University teachers who provide professional development, develop resources, generate research, and act on knowledge to improve the teaching of writing and learning in schools and communities. Since 1986, MUWP has served teachers across disciplines and at all levels.
Marshall University Writing Project is one of ten sites of the national network supporting a rural satellite. MUWP encompasses Three Bridges, based at Marshall University, and the rural satellite, Coalfield Writers, based in Logan County, WV.
Like the National Writing Project, MUWP believes that access to high-quality educational experiences is a basic right of all learners and a cornerstone of equity. We work in partnership with Marshall University, the Office of the President, the Office of the Academic Vice President, the College of Education, the College of Liberal Arts, the State of West Virginia, Cabell County Schools, Logan County Schools, and other school systems in the tri-state area to develop and sustain leadership for educational improvement. MUWP values and seeks the expertise of classroom teachers and research based practices to enrich and improve both the quality and the satisfaction of the educational experience for all.
