What’s in it for You?

As effective teachers, we all seek to deepen literacy teaching and learning. Yet we also need to broaden our 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.


  • Deepen participants’ understanding of writing and instructional strategies as we address the demands of current educational mandates
  • 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

Who’s Involved?

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.

30 ISBE Professional Development Hours will be granted upon course completion

OPTIONAL: Two (2) Northeastern Illinois University graduate credit hours may be earned. This option requires payment of tuition at NEIU’s graduate credit rate. Contact Dr. Katy Smith at K-Smith1@neiu.edu for details about how to register for this credit.
