WRITING COACH PROGRAMS GOING STATE-WIDE!
We recently changed our name to WRITING COACHES OF MONTANA (formerly Writing Coaches of Missoula) to signal our intent to reach out to all communities in Montana interested in writing coaches for their public schools. WCM currently has programs in the Missoula County Public Schools, Bonner, Clinton and Lolo Middle Schools, and Frenchtown High School. Thanks to a two-year grant from the Steele-Reese Foundation, WCM has also begun serving students in the Bitterroot Valley, adding the Stevensville Public Schools last fall and expanding to Hamilton High School in 2017.
Writing Coaches of Montana is a community organization that provides trained volunteer writing coaches to public high school and middle school classrooms in Montana. By conferencing individually with every student on school writing assignments requiring critical thinking and revision, we seek to prepare all students to become confident, competent writers. Our writing coaches work with every student in the classroom, regardless of ability providing more than 3,000 one-on-one writing conference annually in content areas across the curriculum.
