Reading and Writing in a Decade of Standards

In a year of funding-anxiety, EMWP will put on its "game-face" with a series of workshops organized round the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science (announcement).

The monthly presentations at EMU will exhibit our most recent explorations of topics, such as narrative writing, social justice, digital portfolios, and disciplinary literacy (schedule).

The presentations will take place on the second Saturday of every month (except October, which is on the fifteenth) at the newly-renovated Pray-Harrold classrooms at EMU. SB-CEU credit will be offered for attending three or more of the eight sessions.

We encourage you to pre-register on the attached form (registration) and to invite your colleagues in all disciplines, since our program is truly cross-disciplinary. This year, more than ever, we need to make the Eastern Michigan Writing Project visible to all.
