Applications open for our 2021 Summer Institutes!

Applications open for our 2021 Summer Institutes!

We hope you will join us or recommend a colleague for one of our 2021 Summer Institutes! This summer, we are offering two Institutes: 1) our Beginning Teacher Design Institute invites teachers from across grade levels (K-college) and disciplines who are in their first five years of teaching. Our goal: support new educators and connect them with other peers in the area who think about the teaching of writing. And, 2) our traditional Summer Institute invites teachers from across grade levels and disciplines who have 6+ years of teaching experience. Both groups will have some shared time together in the afternoons. Both Institutes will take place virtually via Zoom.

Both institutes support writing intensive educational design. Teachers will read, write, and share their practices together.
