NWP Spring Meeting 2009

After a three year hiatus I will be joining my NWP colleagues again for the NWP Annual Spring Meeting. What is this about?

2009 NWP Spring Meeting
April 2–3, 2009
Washington Court Hotel
525 New Jersey Ave., NW
Washington DC

Join your colleagues in the nation's capital on April 2–3, for the 2009 NWP Spring Meeting. Always an exciting event, the meeting gives writing project teachers and leaders an opportunity to share their classroom successes with members of Congress and with each other. More

We already lined up our activities for the DCAWP Teacher Consultants, I can't wait to see them all again! Here are some last minute reminders from the National Writing Project:

We hope that you have found the Guidelines for Legislative Visits helpful, and that you continue to use them to plan for your visits with other delegates from your state.

Please coordinate your Senate visits and to plan for meetings collectively.

If you are a DCAWP Teacher Consultant, here's our instructions; we have just confirmed our appointment with Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton for 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 2, 2009.

Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton’s Office
2136 Rayburn House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515
Phone: 202 225-8050

Some of us will also be attending the NWP session in the Cannon Building at 8:30 a.m. We need to be there at 8:30 a.m. for the site roll call. DC should be well represented! After that meeting (It’s over at 10:30), some of us usually just hang out and socialize with each other until time to meet with Congresswoman Norton.

I will be there the entire day on Friday, April 3, at the Washington Court Hotel with a keynote speech by Jacqueline Jones Royster, Professor of English at The Ohio State University.

See you there, NWP colleagues!
