Writing Project

The Capital District Writing Project is a community of educators working to improve writing, teaching, and learning in the region's schools.In partnership with the University at Albany School of Education, CDWP brings together teachers to engage in writing, to study writing and to create professional opportunities for teachers to work toward improving writing instruction.

The Capital District Writing Project, which is a site of the National Writing Project, offers effective, research-based professional development for teachers in all content areas and at all levels of education. Through its professional development programs, CDWP promotes teacher leadership and helps schools develop the capacity to improve writing instruction and enhance student learning.
