Pennsylvania Writing and Literature Project

About the Summer Youth Programs:

The Summer Youth Programs are sponsored by the PA Writing & Literature Project (PAWLP), West Chester University (WCU), select area school districts, and several private locations.

The goals of the program are:
• to inspire students to love writing and reading
• to introduce students to the tools they need to become better writers
• to encourage students to collect writing ideas in their notebooks
• to stretch students’ capabilities in writing and reading
• to help students learn to read like writers
• to help students see themselves as writers with individual voices, unique
in their manner of expression


Classes are small, averaging 13 – 15 students. Students are grouped by age and
grade level, and our teachers are prepared to teach multi-age classes. All students
contribute self-selected writing to a literary anthology.
PAWLP, a National Writing Project site, is a professional network of teachers
who promote student achievement through quality instruction.

All directors, site coordinators, and teachers are Fellows of the
National Writing Project as well as experienced classroom teachers.

Our blog has a new name

Because of the restructuring in the gifted department and my new building assignments, I thought it was appropriate to change the name of the blog to represent who this blog will serve starting in the 2013-2014 school year.  I have many updates to add from the 2012-2013 school year that will be a summer project for me, so check back often.  Or better yet, become a subscriber to this blog, and you’ll receive an email anytime I add a new post.

Wishing you all the best for a fantastically fun summer!  See you in August.

Mrs. D’Amico
