for scaling up College-Ready Writers Program  
The National Writing Project (NWP), a well-regarded teacher professional development organization, focuses the knowledge, expertise, and leadership of educators on efforts to improve student writing and learning. With this grant, the NWP will expand deeper learning practice in writing and its assessment, specifically by increasing teachers’ capacity to teach argumentative, analytical forms of writing. The NWP will work in 46 rural districts in 16 states, reaching approximately 40,000 students in grades 4–10, especially schools that serve students with the highest need.
