The Northern Plains Writing Project (NPWP) is a non-profit professional development network that promotes the National Writing Project model of creating learning communities by having “teachers teaching teachers.” Our goal is to promote literacy and improve education in North Dakota schools by offering pre-school, elementary, middle school, secondary, and university educators the opportunity to develop effective teaching practices for reading and writing, to discover for themselves the joy of writing, and the best ways to use writing in their classrooms. Teachers also earn graduate credits through courses offered at institutes, workshops, and retreats.
