The College, Career, & Community Writers Program (C3WP)

This program is designed to improve the argument writing of students in grades 5 through 12 by introducing teachers to new instructional practices. It has been shown to have a positive, statistically significant impact on the four attributes of student writing - content, structure, stance, and conventions.

Why C3WP?

Writing is an essential skill in modern American society. It is crucial to careers and civic engagement. Yet U.S. students' writing falls far short of national expectations. States have adopted new standards to increase the chances that students will gradualte high school prepared for college and careers, but most students are not yet receiving instruction that is aligned with those standards.

A Model that Works

The National Writing Project designed professional development to improve teachers' ability to teach to college and career ready standards, with specific emphasis on improving students' skill in writing arguments based on nonfiction texts.
