National Writing Project and Google
Letters to the Next President: Writing Our Future is open to U.S. teachers and mentors working with students ages 14–18. The project requires parent/guardian permission for students to publish their work on the Web and requires that students and teachers have Internet connectivity and use or create a free Google account.
Google accounts allow teachers and students to use Google Docs to compose, collaborate, edit, and share writing through Internet-accessible documents. The Letters to the Next President: Writing Our Future website provides a secure way for teachers to publish students' publication-ready writing to a high-profile website intended to feature strong, well-reasoned, and persuasive writing by young people.
Interested teachers should read How to Participate and then register here by September 8. Please note, in order to register for this project, you must first have an account on NWPi.
