Korematsu Discovery Academy, Oakland

This team of elementary teachers will regularly meet with the Bay Area Writing Project (BAWP) coaches to design a project-based, action-oriented, writing curriculum that integrates expository, persuasive, and narrative writing into standards based social studies and science units. They will place special emphasis on drawing parallels to current events, and creating opportunities for students to interact with the community at large and find their public voice, learning how to be active participants in civic life. In addition to their work with BAWP, team members will also participate in interactive workshops, classroom observations, collaborative planning, lesson testing, examinations of student writing, and share outs of learnings with teachers in their school community.
