Teachers Teaching Teachers Writing Instruction
The Invitational Summer Institute is a four-week professional development experience that prompts teachers to explore their own writing practices as a means of improving their writing instruction. Upon completion of the Institute, participants become Teacher Consultants who continue to grow as writers and teachers of writing through various site activities. Opportunities for continued professional development include writing circles and annual retreats, conferences and receptions, and electronic conversation with colleagues. Our expanding site also offers leadership opportunities for Teacher Consultants.
Each February NWP@Rutgers hosts a Midwinter Writing Conference that includes concurrent presentations of the teacher consultants as well as the keynote presentation of a national leader in the area of writing.
