Pearl of the Concho Writing Project

The National Writing Project network consists of nearly 200 sites in 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The project provides programs to promote and improve writing and the teaching of writing. Founded in 1973, the National Writing Project is a successful education program that improves the quality of writing and learning in schools across the country through its professional development model of teachers-teaching-teachers.

ASU’s Pearl of the Concho Writing Project is one of 10 National Writing Project sites in Texas. Started by Dr. Cheryl Hines in 2004, the project has trained more than 80 teachers to improve writing instruction in their classrooms. In addition to the professional development of teachers, the Pearl of the Concho Writing Project offers creative writing programs for students grades 3–8.
