UCLA Writing Project
Welcome to the UCLA Writing Project, a site of the California Writing Project and National Writing Project since 1977. We work with teachers of all disciplines and levels, helping them not only to expand their repertoires as teachers but also as writers. We believe that all -- teachers and students --can become good writers and experience the satisfaction of capturing thoughts in just the right words.
As you navigate our website, you'll see programs that range from a focus on enhancing the abilities of English learners, to assessing student writing, differentiating instruction and leveraging the particular talents Los Angeles area students bring to the classroom.
The UCLA Writing Project and Center X invite you to the 25th annual With Different Eyes Conference. We focus on access and equity for all students, with English learners center stage. And we define English learners broadly: newcomers to the United States, long-term English learners, speakers of African American English and indigenous languages. Rooted in a social justice stance and aligned with the Common Core State Standards, our conference poses questions and sheds light on the joys and challenges of teaching and learning in urban classrooms.
Professor Tyrone Howard will set the stage by focusing on the ways race, culture and language matter in schools. Then our K-university colleagues will engage us in hands-on workshops in all disciplines, demonstrating successful lessons and teaching practices.
Conference Fee: $90

Parking in Lot 2: Enter the campus at Hilgard and Westholme. Make a left up the ramp toward the parking structure, and you’ll see parking lot attendants at the gate. Tell them that you’re with the With Different Eyes Conference—and you will receive complimentary parking in lot 2. Make sure not to park in the Pay-By-Space section—we don’t want you to be ticketed. Also, the attendants are only on call until 9:00 am. If you arrive on campus after then, please go to the Westwood Plaza kiosk to receive your parking pass for lot 2.
