Teaching Writing in Wyoming:

Teaching Writing in Wyoming (TWW) is an annual state-wide colloquium aimed at bringing together writing educators in grades 6-13. The colloquium focuses on discussing best practices in curriculum, innovative approaches to teaching, and assessment practices across all levels. The colloquium often features dynamic speakers and break-out sessions. 



TWW is co-sponsored by the School-University Partnership, the LeaRN Program, and the English Department. The TWW colloquium is a part of the School-University Partnership's Lost in Transition Initiative.


2014 TWW Colloquium

This fall, TWW teamed up with the Literature Summit to present the 2014 Lost in Transition: Writing and Literature in the 21st Century. 46 participants from across Wyoming came together to discuss the importance of close reading and writing for students' deeper learning. For more details about the colloquium, visit our Past Colloquiums page.


What the participants said...
Lost in Transition Participants
  • "Such an awesome opportunity to talk with peers to talk about the central issues that we struggle with through the years... "
  • "I walked away with a broader perspective of how to create ownership of a text with students and what that looks lie f rom 6th grade through college."
  • "Being in a small group forced me to articulate my ideas.  That was great!"
  • "We each work with different age groups, but there is no hierarchy here. I have benefited from this diverse group of teachers, and I'll be back."
