Several leaders in the National Writing Project–Paul Oh, Elyse Eidman-Aadahl, and Troy Hicks–joined us from Washington DC where
they were working to lobby members of Congress today, Thursday, March 31.
Also Chad Sansing, Zac Chase, and Andrea Zellner joined us on the Skype conversation–as well as many friends in the chat. Chad has been organizing a
blogging effort going on around the country. Here’s what he is asking
supporters of the NWP to do:
Please add your voice to the chorus of educators from around the country who are blogging in support of the NWP.
We’re trying to accumulate 1,000 blog posts by April 8, when the next
Continuing Resolution for the federal budget expires. There are already
nearly 150 posts – moving stories of the impact of the NWP on the lives
of teachers and students – at the archive: http://coopcatalyst.wordpress.com/2011/03/15/the-blog4nwp-archive/ You can tweet or email your blog post URL to Chad Sansing (twitter: @chadsansing; email: [email protected])
who has been organizing this effort, or post it to this discussion and
we’ll make sure it gets added to the archive. Remember to try to tag
your posts with: #blog4nwp. FYI, we’ve gotten a few responses on
twitter to this effort from the press office of the Department of
Education (see: http://www.andrea-zellner.com/archives/629 and http://aetweets.wordpress.com/2011/03/25/blog4nwp-and-being-bossy/), so let’s keep it up!
Check out what folks have written to get an idea of what you might add
but more importantly take a few minutes to add your story (stories).

Project. Then find your own ways to add your voice the the the chorus singing praises to the
