The Red Clay Writing Project, housed at the UGA College of Education, opened doors in 2003 as one of nearly 200 sites of the National Writing Project. As a professional learning community for teacher educators, it has been supporting teachers for around 50 years. Red Clay and the National Writing Project believe that in order for our K-12 students to develop their identity as writers, as teachers we get to first develop our identity as writers!
All Red Clay Writing Project activities are open to P-16 teachers interested in learning more about writing as teachers, writing pedagogy, writing communities, social justice, classroom-based inquiry, and teacher leadership.
Many of these iterations of Red Clay Writing Workshop events can receive UGA credit. All Red Clay Writing Project offerings are designed and implemented through the lenses of teacher leadership, teaching for social justice, and teaching in inquiry-based ways.
