Connections to Summer Institute 2010
Berkeley, CA, June 1, 2010 – More than 3,000 kindergarten-through-college teachers across the country will dedicate four weeks this summer to learning new strategies to improve their students' writing skills.
The teachers were selected to attend National Writing Project (NWP) Summer Institutes held at the more than 200 NWP sites located on college campuses in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Co-directed by university faculty and classroom teachers, the institutes allow teachers in all subject areas to study the latest research on the teaching of writing and share knowledge, expertise, and effective classroom practices.
"Teachers who attend the Summer Institute will return to their classrooms next fall equipped with proven strategies for teaching young people how to write and how to use writing to learn," said Sharon J. Washington, NWP Executive Director. "Writing continues to be the signature means of communication in the digital age, and these institutes provide valuable continuous learning opportunities for teachers across the country."
