The Write Stuff Researchers have cited the National Writing Project, a federally supported network based at the University of California, Berkeley, as one effective model of professional development. Here are the group’s core principals:

n Teachers are the agents of reform; universities and schools are partners for investing in that reform through professional development.

n Professional development programs provide opportunities for teachers to work together to understand the full spectrum of writing development across grades and across subject areas.

n Effective professional development programs provide frequent and ongoing opportunities for teachers to write and to examine theory, research, and practice together systematically.

n Teachers who are well informed and effective in their practice can be successful teachers of other teachers as well as partners in educational research, development, and implementation.

n A reflective and informed community of practice is in the best position to design and develop comprehensive writing programs.
