Since 2011 I've connected with a growing number of on-line learning communities, and added links to many in this section of the web library. I keep looking for spaces that connect existing content with people who discuss that content in on-line, on-going spaces. The TWC seems to do that.

Western Massachusetts Writing Project
From the web site: "WMWP is a professional community of teachers who value reflection and inquiry; who care about issues of race, gender, language, class, and culture; who come together to deepen our experience as writers, to share our knowledge and expertise, to transform our practice, to improve student learning, and to develop expertise and leadership.
