“Because writing can support a high level of learning in all core subjects, it matters in any classroom where inquiry, knowledge, and expression are valued and recognized by students and teachers.”

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.

“What is required is a cadre of committed teachers with classroom experience in teaching writing who can share their knowledge of effective strategies. Finding experienced teachers who volunteer for the task, who write themselves, and who know the research in testing writing is crucial to success.”- Because Writing Matters,NWP & Carl Nagin
