Invitational Institute: Summer 2014
The Eastern Michigan Writing Project (EMWP) Invitational Institute is an intensive four-week session designed for teachers and administrators (K-College) concerned with the teaching of writing in any subject area and interested in staff development opportunities. We seek teacher applicants who demonstrate their commitment to the teaching of writing and who wish to expand their knowledge. We encourage teachers from all disciplines and grade levels to apply. Some activities during the Institute include:
• Writing and responding to each other’s writing
• Reading and talking about current research in the teaching of writing
• Demonstrating to each other our own teaching practices
• Learning from other teacher consultants who continue their research in the field
Throughout the subsequent school year teachers will participate in five continuity meetings and share what we have learned about writing and the teaching of writing in our classrooms. You must apply and be accepted to this institute (application below), and an interview is required. Acceptance will be conditional on acceptance to the Graduate School, unless you choose the “non-credit” option. Preference is given to applicants requesting credit, although some non-credit applicants will also be accepted.
