Description

In partnership with The Bancroft Library at the University of California Berkeley, three years ago the National Writing Project (NWP) launched the NWP Archives Project to ensure preservation and accessibility of NWP organizational records, publications, and resources, including more than 100 oral history interviews from founding Writing Project site directors, scholars, teacher-leaders, and funders. The NWP Archives provides a rich resource for all who are interested in the history of literacy and, in particular, composition and rhetoric, and the role of teacher leadership and professionalization in the United States, as well as the spread of the NWP model to a range of international locations.

On this day, NWP will be celebrating the grand opening of the NWP archives at the Bancroft Library. Join them to hear about the archives’ grand opening and to celebrate the project and the history of NWP.
