What can PLWP do for administrators? We can work with you and your school’s professional development team to deliver a school-based inservice series based on your school’s needs. During the calendar year ending August 31, 2010, PLWP sponsored seminars, institutes, and programs which involved over 1,000 teachers. To arrange for one or more of our National Writing Project school-based in-services, contact: Dr. Susan Martens, site director (Phone: 816 271-4315) or Heidi Mick, PLWP professional development director.
