One Saturday each month, beginning this September, the UC Merced Writing Project will host an elite series of workshops that focus on helping educators develop strategies for teaching writing. It does not matter what subject you teach, if you are a student teacher or practice home schooling, there are strategies all educators can use to teach writing more effectively! We look forward to sharing these strategies at our workshops with educators like you.

All workshops will have two presenters and topics.
