For the third year in a row, NWP-KSU has received a mini-grant from the National Writing Project to collaborate with Cuyahoga Valley National Park. This year’s theme, Honoring Voices Across Communities, will examine ways to integrate the park’s unique history and cross-curricular writing in the classroom in conjunction with diverse mentor texts, explore how to use podcasts to celebrate sharing of place, provide an opportunity to participate with other educators in place-based writing and contribute to a digital sharing platform that could also be implemented your own classroom!
