NSTWP Professional Development

As North Star of Texas Writing Project Teacher Consultants, we provide cutting-edge professional development for K-12 literacy teachers. We invite teachers to become lifelong learners and leaders. We advocate for teachers!

If you invite us into your district, we will:

  • Support your comprehensive school-improvement effort, including partnering with all stakeholders.
  • Use the latest research about effective teaching, adult learning, multiple modalities, and brain-based techniques.
  • Encourage professional dialogue
  • Always address student learning needs, using information from multiple sources--disaggregated data, teacher inquiries, and/or collaborative problem-solving.
  • Engage teachers in diverse and flexible professional development formats, using multiple learning modalities as appropriate.

What Makes North Star Professional Development Unique?

  • We are a part of your community!  We are here to stay!
  • We customize our PD to meet the needs of your campus or your district.
  • We focus on significant PD topics, providing opportunities for deep investigations connecting research to practice, rather than superficial coverage.
  • We offer a range of formats related to those topics, including follow-up (coaching, peer obs, online, etc.)
  • Quality assurance (we work together to be good!) We coach each other…and the advanced institute prepares TCs.
