Resolution on the National Writing Project

1987 NCTE Annual Business Meeting in Los Angeles, California


In the following resolution, NCTE members hailed the National Writing Project as a major force for increasing public understanding that writing is fundamental to student learning in all subjects. They praised the project for fostering collaboration between public schools and universities, for providing a forum in which teachers can share knowledge for improvement of the teaching of writing, and for calling attention to excellent teachers of writing. Be it therefore


Resolved, that the National Council of Teachers of English commend the National Writing Project, an exemplary national resource providing stability and guidance for the more than 160 national and international sites of the program, for its vision, commitment, and leadership;

     that NCTE commend the National Writing Project for its success in disseminating sound practices in the teaching of writing, which is a powerful argument for its continuation; and

     that NCTE commend the many institutions, agencies, and individuals who have supported the National Writing Project, particularly the University of California at Berkeley, which has been the hub and core of the project.
