Texas Bluebonnet Writing Project

From their webpage re children's education

"The Texas Bluebonnet Writing Project (TBWP) is UTA’s National Writing Project site. With more than 189 sites across the nation, the National Writing Project (NWP) implements the standards of No Child Left Behind by sponsoring workshops for over 100,000 teachers annually.
The NWP model is dedicated to the beliefs that teachers are the best teachers of other teachers, that effective professional development requires a continuum of in-service of programs, and that students ultimately benefit from research-based practices.
The NWP model is a bottom-up model of professional development. This means that NWP opportunities are created to address the needs, suggestions, and best practices of our teacher consultants. The professional development provided by the Bluebonnet Writing Project has been researched and implemented in classrooms across the metroplex.
TBWP is part of the National Writing Projects of Texas which is Texas’ state network of NWP sites.What We Do…
We offer professional development with strategies that incorporate Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) to enable a diverse student population to meet and/or exceed proficiencies on Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) and national standardized assessments."
