Welcome To CAWP


We’re so excited we are able to offer two free a.m. workshops this summer.  These workshops are designed for secondary teachers focusing on two very specific and high-stakes writing genres:

Friday, July 7  (9a.m.-noon)   Understanding the SAT  (Registration deadline: June 30)

Friday, July 21 (9a.m.-noon)   The College Essay         (Registration deadline: July 17)

CAWP Teacher Consultant Patti Delacruz has studied both of these, and her students have benefited!  Help your students too and sign up for these great workshops soon!  CPDUs provided.
