Live Oak Writing Project is an affiliate of the National Writing Project, and shares its mission to help educators improve writing and learning for all students.
The program is at the forefront of the Common Core Student Standards and provides workshops and staff development that shows teachers how to work effectively and successfully within the Common Core framework.
Live Oak contracts with local school districts to provide staff development programs tailored to the specific needs of each school. Among our success stories are Pass Christian Elementary School and North Bay Elementary School, Bay St. Louis. Programs are reasonably priced and planned to cover at least one year's work. Our research shows that in order for sustained learning to occur, staff development providers must make long-term investments in the work of a district. We strive to help teachers in all disciplines understand the importance of infusing their instruction with writing.
