What’s a TBAWP?

Don’t worry, it’s not contagious and it won’t bite.

TBAWP stands for Tampa Bay Area Writing Project. It’s the local chapter of the National Writing Project – a huge nationwide organization of writing teachers. Through the writing project teachers who are really good at writing get even better at teaching writing… so much better that they teach other teachers how to better help their students. AT TBAWP, we call this becoming a Teacher Consultant.

The Tampa Bay Area Writing Project was founded in 1998 by Dr. Pat Jones an associate professor of English Education at the University of South Florida.
