The JSU Writing Project was awarded $20,000 by the National Writing Project Corporation. The JSU Writing Project has provided professional development opportunities and leadership training for local teachers during the past 25 years.
The JSU Writing Project is directed by Mrs. Gloria Horton in the English Department. The JSU Writing Project will expand the capacity of local teachers and prepare them for the challenges of the 21st century classroom. The JSU Writing Project will offer a technology conference, summer institute, and 21st century conference. During the technology conference, the presenters will train teachers in using 21st century technologies in their classrooms. This project will combine virtual professional development with classroom professional development. Strategies for using IPads, computers, digital cameras and software will be included in the course.
