The Purchase Area Writing Project (PAWP) is dedicated to helping primary and secondary school teachers in the western Kentucky area build student success in writing. An official site of the National Writing Project, we share its beliefs about writing and teaching:
PAWP holds a variety of activities each year, including our Summer Institute in June at Murray State University. Teachers who participate in the PAWP Summer Institute return to their schools to administer workshops and in-service sessions.
PAWP also coordinates a series of outreach programs - workshops held at schools throughout the region. If you are interested in hosting a workshop at your school, please contact us and we'll make those plans work together. For more information on Professional Development Training programs available from PAWP, please download our brochure.
For more information about PAWP programs, please contact the program administrator. If you are a teacher interested in participating, please fill out the contact form and we'll be in touch with more information.
PAWP is now accepting applications for the 2012 Summer Institute.
The annual Purchase Area Writing Project Summer Institute is a joint effort between Murray State University and the Kentucky Writing Project. Funded by the Kentucky Department of Education and the National Writing Project, the program provides public school teachers with four weeks of intensive training and practice to promote improved writing and literacy instruction in the public schools. The 2012 PAWP Summer Institute is scheduled for June 5 - June 29, 2012.
