Teachers as Writers, Teachers of Writers, Teachers as Leaders
What’s in it for You?
As effective teachers, we all seek to deepen literacy teaching and learning. Yet we also need a broader view of our role influencing the direction of education in our schools and to learn leadership strategies for doing this constructively. Our IWP Summer Leadership Institute focuses on all these aspects of our work.
This institute is designed for K-12 classroom teachers, school literacy leaders, and other educators interested in developing leadership skills while advancing their teaching of writing. The institute will be led by a highly experienced IWP teacher/leader, Jan Booth.
*Deepen participants’ understanding of writing and instructional strategies as we address the Common Core standards thoughtfully
*Examine teacher leadership roles that help to move teachers, schools, and districts toward more effective approaches to teaching and learning
*Engage in energizing renewal as we work with like-minded, committed professionals
The Two-Week-Plus Leadership Institute Focus:
- Week One: Teachers as Writers, with implications for the classroom
- Week Two Plus Two days (& two 3-hour sessions in May and September): Teachers as Writing Instructors & Literacy Leaders
