School Partnerships

Do you want more from professional development?  

Consider forming a school partnership with Drew University.

  • Schools commit to an annual series that is tailored to meet their individual needs.
  • Programs focus on developing print and/or digital literacy skills and on improving the quality of teaching in K-12 classrooms.  
  • Workshops are presented by experienced, trained Teacher Consultants from the National Writing Project or Teacher Leaders from the Digital Literacies Collaborative.  
  • Programs are based on the National Writing Project model and are centered on research-supported, classroom-tested ideas.  
  • Programs are aligned to the Common Core State Standards and support GSOs and SGPs.
