Applications open for our 2020 Summer Institute! (Postponed)

Like many programs across the globe, we are sad to say that we will be postponing our 2020 Summer Institute until summer 2021. We are, however, working on some alternative formats for supporting teachers. More information coming soon.

Stay safe everyone and thank you for everything you’re doing for students!


We hope you will join us or recommend a colleague for the 2020 Summer Institute! This summer, we are looking for teachers from across grade levels and disciplines who are in their first five years of teaching. Our goal: support our new, rural educators and connect them with other peers in the area who think about the teaching of writing.
