When Don Rothman founded the Central California Writing Project in 1977, he wanted to “provide a space for sustained, difficult, and courageous dialogue about how the teaching of writing can enhance democracy.” The Central California Writing Project is continuing his legacy through programs and professional learning opportunities that support educators in this goal, especially those who work with underserved and diverse populations.
Because funding has been cut at the state and national levels, we need your help to provide scholarships for teachers who want to improve their teaching of writing in Santa Cruz, San Benito, and Monterey Counties. Your donation can give teachers the time, space, and encouragement to learn how to teach their students to become better thinkers and writers—critical skills in today’s society.
Writing Rocks! Support improvement in writing instruction and in student writing and literacy learning.
