Summer Institute 2011
Summer Institute for the Teaching of Writing
STWP conducts a four week Summer Institute on the Teaching of Writing that is the gateway to the National Writing Project's professional community.
Fellows receive a scholarship to cover tuition and fees and can earn up to six hours of graduate credit through TAMIU's College of Arts and Sciences, College of Education, or earn a stipend.
At the Summer Institute, teachers share best practices, explore critical research that drives classroom practice, and discover the power of writing to communicate and writing to learn.
Upon completion, fellows become Teacher Consultants of SWTP and are able to participate in the NWP's on-going professional growth and leadership opportunities at the local, state, and national levels.
