CPPS – Captain Shreve Educators To Lead National Conversation On Writing Instruction At Annual Conference

Four Captain Shreve High School educators are preparing to head to Baltimore on Nov. 21-24 to lead a series of roundtable discussions at the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) annual conference.

Library media specialist Maureen Barclay and teachers Amy Douglas, Sarah Hamm and Dottie Reeser have been selected to share the foundational research that guided their inquiry and reflective practice as part of Captain Shreve’s work with the National Writing Project (NWP). Team members will highlight collaboration with local NWP branches and school administrators. The session is titled, “Collaboration to Build an Interdisciplinary Writing Community.”

Attendees will learn strategies to garner administrative and community support in developing an interdisciplinary community of writers.  The team will share opportunities to write for authentic purposes and audiences across content areas.

“Since I began my career as a teacher, I have benefited from the research, practices, speakers and information provided by NCTE and NWP,” Barclay said. “I am excited to give back to the national conversation and to use this opportunity to continue to improve how we are providing instruction for students.”
