College Ready Writers Program Application
This application is to participate in the National Writing Project @ WVU's College Ready Writers Program. The CRWP is designed by English teachers across the country, and its purpose is to serve as high quality professional development for ELA teachers at the middle and high school levels on the teaching of source-based argumentation.

The CRWP program asks that participating teachers commit to the entire year of professional development. CRWP includes four day-long sessions during the summer, monthly online activities with the group, and a final session together in May 2018 (date TBD). Teachers are also asked to commit to teaching four argumentation units across the school year. Materials for these units will be provided.
