2016 Teaching Writing in Wyoming and Literature Summit, Participants in table discussions

English Wyoming Academic Transition Initiative

Wyoming School-University Partnership


English Signup
English, including reading and writing, is a major priority for all educators regardless of their discipline or level.  This has become evident through the discussions, projects, and inquiries during Partnership English transitions meetings. These events are coordinated by the Wyoming School-University Partnership, the University of Wyoming LeaRN Program, and the University of Wyoming English Department.  Many past events were funded by support from the Qwest Foundation.
