Assignments Matter 2015
Hosted by The National Writing Project
Join us for our first National Task Jam—the opportunity to work with colleagues locally and nationally to design high quality, engaging, writing assignments.
Because we know that the quality of writing tasks impacts students’ capacity to achieve, because we know that creating high quality writing tasks is complex, intellectually challenging work, and because we know engaging in important, high quality work is better and more fun when we do it with others!
