What We Are
The Upper Cumberland Writing Project (UCWP) is a professional development program designed to improve writing and writing instruction in the region's schools--in all grade levels and all subject areas. We work from a firm belief in the power of
- teachers teaching teachers;
- relying on classroom-tested knowledge and practices; and
- employing diverse approaches to writing instruction across disciplines.
We are a network of experienced pre-K-12 and college-level educators who care about working with writers to improve skills, strategies, and attitudes.
