School Partnerships

The best way to achieve lasting change in literacy instruction is to participate in our partnership program. Partnerships are long-term commitments toward school improvement. Seven Valleys works closely with administration and teachers to design a program that best meets the needs of your district.

The goals of Seven Valleys’ school partnerships are to:

  • Improve learning for all students across levels and content areas
  • Increase the use of writing as a tool for learning in all subject areas
  • Expand the knowledge base for teaching literacy by providing continuous professional development on site
  • Build the leadership capacity of teachers
  • Expand school literacy programs to include families and the community
  • Encourage the sharing of effective teacher practice through a network of schools and districts

 

Our work with schools may include the following:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Writing Across the Curriculum and Writing in the Disciplines
  • Demonstration Lessons
  • In-service Workshops
  • Study groups
  • After-school workshop series
  • Community and family writing programs
  • Common Core Standards
  • Reserved positions for district teachers at Writing Project conferences and 7VWP’s Summer Invitational Institute
