The Continuity program of the Upstate Writing Project allows Teacher Consultants to become involved in leadership opportunities that are vital to the work of the site. Teacher Consultants join together as a professional community through leadership teams, teacher inquiry programs, book groups, writing groups, and other types of learning communities that provide ongoing opportunities to improve the practice of teaching writing. Teacher Consultants also gather for social events to build networks with other teachers that are involved in the Upstate Writing Project.
