Welcome to the Fox Valley Writing Project

 

            The FVWP is an innovative effort between the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh College of Education and Human Services and area schools. Since 1986, we have served thousands of teachers in Wisconsin through our Summer Institute, Writing Conferences, and graduate courses.

           

            The Fox Valley Writing Project, an affiliate of the National Writing Project, is a proven, professional program for kindergarten through Post-secondary teachers. Based on teachers teaching teachers, this innovative effort between the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh college of Education and Human Services and area school districts brings teachers together to share strategies to teach writing and improve their personal writing skills.

 

            Since 1986, this project has served thousands of teachers in Wisconsin. Opportunities for teachers include The Summer Institute, writing conferences, book groups, and graduate courses held at various locations. The goal of these events is to positively impact the writing experiences of students in our area.

 

            We believe writing is an integral part of the learning process in all subjects at all grade levels. With this in mind, our programs provide opportunities for teachers to grow as teachers of writing and as writers themselves.
