Summers 2015 / 2016

This issue of the Philadelphia Writing Project Journal features selections from Summer Institute participants and other practitioners sharing their commitment towards professional growth through everything from unit plans to poems. Kindergarten to high school and beyond, these teacher voices add a context for inquiry into teaching and learning that continue to enrich the lives of the students they serve.
