Welcome! We are Cherokee Rose! 

The Cherokee Rose Writing Project began in the summer of 2007 on the campus of the University of West Georgia. Our first summer institute, The Word and the World, was a month long intensive workshop during which teachers came together to talk, to read, to study, and hopefully to influence writing instruction for students in the West Georgia area. One of our goals at CRWP is to bring high-quality professional development programs to the teachers of Western Georgia.

Through our Summer Institute and other exciting programs, CRWP is quickly becoming recognized for our innovative teaching methods and high standards of excellence. Elementary, Middle, and Secondary teachers from West Georgia schools come together for four weeks in June to read and reflect on the latest research and educational theory, to discuss pressing issues in education, and to share best practices to enhance teaching. Participants also strengthen their understanding of the writing process by becoming writers themselves, compiling a portfolio of writing pieces throughout the Institute.

    What is the Cherokee Rose Writing Project?

    The Cherokee Rose Writing Project is located on the campus of the University of West Georgia serving educators, parents, students, and communities of mid-west Georgia. Our name, Cherokee Rose Writing Project (CRWP) is descriptive of the region and invokes close associations with the land of mid-west Georgia. The Cherokee Rose, our state flower, metaphorically symbolizes not only new beginnings from the blooms in spring and summer but evokes the rich history of the indigenous people who originally inhabited this area. Accordingly, we expect CRWP to provide a strong framework for dialogue upon which educators in schools and districts with diverse needs will strengthen collegiality with ingenuity and flexibility.

    Summer Institute 

    The Cherokee Rose Summer Institute brings together educators from across the K-16 spectrum for four intensive weeks in June to read, reflect, and write. Participants strengthen their understanding of the writing process by becoming writers themselves, compiling a portfolio of writing pieces throughout the Institute. The ultimate goal is for teachers to return to their classrooms in the fall ready to share their new strategies with other teachers through a workshop format.
