    Third Coast Writing Project at Western Michigan University====
    The Third Coast Writing Project (TCWP) at Western Michigan University is an organization of, by, and for teachers of students at all levels (kindergarten-university) and in all disciplines, dedicated to improving the teaching and uses of writing through a variety of programs.Founded on the belief that teachers are the key to lasting school reform, this National Writing Project (Berkeley, California) site promotes no single approach to the teaching of writing, no set formulas, no packaged plans. Instead, in its summer and school-based professional development programs, it introduces teachers to informed and effective practices that are grounded in research.
