Join us for the EIWP Summer Institute:

Continuing Fully Online!

The Invitational Summer Institute brings together dedicated teachers in cohorts of 10–15 to research, teach, and celebrate writing. The Summer Institute provides opportunities for these teachers to celebrate writing and reading across the curriculum at all grade levels, while helping to teach and build a community of peers. Teachers also design and develop writing and reading projects to meet their and their colleagues’ needs.

Activities include formal and informal writing workshops, teaching demonstrations, reading and research, small and large group discussions, coaching sessions, and celebrating reading and writing for all of the power and potential they possess.

Educators from all disciplines in grades K–16 are invited to attend our EIWP Summer Institute. If you would enjoy participating in our Summer Institute, complete the application by clicking the link below.
