About this Grantee
Mrs. Kauffman and Mrs. Taptich will lead the “Centre Teacher Writers,” a group consisting of elementary, middle, and high school educators, as well as two Penn State University professors. The team will work collaboratively to develop strategies to teach writing to diverse groups of students. Throughout the course of the year, the group will publish professional articles and newspaper columns, and create exemplars for student assignments. Additionally, the cohort will develop new components for enhancing student-teacher classroom writing conferences.
