Excerpt from Show

Renee Albertol on the natural connection between National Parks’ Services and the National Writing Project:

“We discovered that our goals were almost identical as organizations. The National Writing Project’s connected learning model so closely mirrors the National Park Services’ call to action goals. We’re working to advance the same goals, and it makes sense that we would work together. For the Park Service, we’re really emphasizing a deep understanding of our resources, relevance to the students, and that there’s multiple ways to access our resources, sites, and stories.”
