IWT’s mission is to enliven and enrich learning in classrooms through writing. To this end, IWT designs workshops and professional development programs for secondary and college teachers. Practical, hands-on instruction in a collaborative learning environment demonstrates for teachers how they can lead their students to discover rather than just setting out to find answers.
The philosophy and the practice of IWT are one: Writing is both a record of completed thought and an exploratory process that supports teaching and learning across disciplines. At all levels writing allows the writer to discover what she or he wants to say.
