In keeping with the National Writing Project tenet of “teachers-teaching-teachers,” LVWP is host to multiple conferences each year that harness the talent of LVWP Teacher Consultants, university faculty, and nationally-known authors and educators. The importance of coming together to learn from one another’s practice is a guiding principle of LVWP professional development, no matter the venue, and our annual Best Practices in Teaching Writing and bi-annual Mini-Best Practices provide access for local and regional educators to collaborate and share their own best practices.
