Heather Wolpert-Gawron on Her Lively New PLP E-course: Project-Based Writing

Project-Based Writing (PBW) is about more authentic, purposeful ways to teach, learn and use writing. Does the kind of writing we’re teaching exist out in the real world? In other words, does it have a real-world application? If it can be found outside of school, then we as teachers can mine it for application within school. The learners in this eCourse will end up producing a PBW portfolio, based on units they and other participants create, of authentic writing projects with real world connections. They will walk away with a meaningful digital curriculum binder to use “Monday or Someday.”
