WRITE OUT: Place-Based Making with Writing Project Sites and the National Park Service
Writers reside inside internal landscapes. They traverse the contours of stories and poems, learning and understanding. They turn pen on paper and characters on screens into art. They write for themselves as much as for the world.
This summer, we hope to encourage you—educators, teachers, mentors—to take your writing and teaching self outside, into the natural wonders of open landscapes and historical spaces, and explore through the eyes of connected teachers, connected learners, and connected park rangers.
Write Out will be a summer open online adventure for educators being sponsored by the National Writing Project and the National Park Service. We hope to provide a range of new and interesting ways to explore the natural and historical resources around you, using as our lens the principles of Connected Learning.
