The goals that follow are at the heart of every CWP program:
- Prepare students for the work of writing—in school and college, in the workplace and community
- Emphasize instructional approaches for developing the writing and reading skills of English learners
- Support teachers as they prepare students to meet and exceed the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), English Language Development (ELD) standards, and state content standards
Support for Common Core State Standards and English Language Development Standards:
CCWP programs build knowledge of CCSS-aligned instruction and assessment, integrate CCSS into school writing programs, and place discipline-specific literacy at the core of teacher support. Programs also focus on connecting ELD standards with CCSS to support access, rigor, and differentiation for English learners, as well as on strengthening the learning connections between home and school.
Digital Writing, Teaching, and Learning:
CCWP provides programs that link technology-mediated instruction and assessment to the CCSS, strengthen student learning by developing 21st century skills, and address media literacy.
