Fees include Program Facilitators (see cover, Partner Plans)
In-service Series ($3000)
Each partnership plan may include an annual in-service series of approximately 10 hours addressing the topical needs of the school partner. Delivered across the school year, the interactive demonstrations of the EMWP Teacher Consultants are arranged in a coherent sequence that shifts from general dilemmas associated with process writing instruction to specific issues. Schools may choose to segment the time in a way that best serves their needs—any combination of full or half-days, after-school or staff meeting time slots.
See glossy brochure for examples.
Professional Learning Communities ($2000)
A facilitated PLC can take the form of a book study group or teacher research/inquiry group to investigate issues raised by the inservice workshops.
(see avocado flier attached) (6 sessions; may be extended)
Open Institute ($3000)
The Open Institute prompts teachers to explore their own writing or teaching practices as a means of improving their writing instruction. We offer a five-day summer institute for ten to fifteen teachers. Topics might include: the teacher as writer, developing a teacher research question, or writing assessment.
With a minimum of ten enrolled, we can design a special topics course on literacy education for three graduate credits (usual tuition and fees paid by the partner and/or participants).
Writing Camp/Teaching Lab ($5000)
The summer Writing Camp for students is a wonderful way to reach out to the community. It provides enrichment for students who are talented writers or who need help with writing. It also serves as an excellent staff development experience. EMWP consultants co-teach with school faculty in the morning, and then spend the afternoon in professional development work centered on the writing lessons being taught.
The Family Literacy Initiative ($2500)
The Family Literacy Initiative offers parents and caregivers insight into the writing process so that they can encourage and help their children and teens with writing at home. Three programs are available (see blue flier enclosed): a workshop for parents and caregivers who want to learn more about how to encourage their student writers in grades K – 12; a workshop that brings family members together to experience the joy of writing stories about growing up; and a third, more intensive offering, which brings family members together to write, revise, and publish stories about their communities and growing-up during four 90-minute sessions. In this third workshop, family members will participate in a Celebration of Family Writing and learn practical tips about how to continue the family writing project at home.
