Annual Summer Institutes in Writing

The 2014 Coastal Savannah Writing Project Summer Writing Institute is a 3-credit, 8-day course for K-12 teachers and administrators in all content areas. The Institute provides a place and time for teachers to demonstrate and learn diverse effective classroom practices, teach and learn writing processes, examine writing theory and research and the Common Core State Standards for Writing, become comfortable writing in divergent modes, types, and genres, and share their writings with colleagues.

The Summer Institute will bring together local teachers in all grade levels and all disciplines for reading, writing, research, discussion, and collaboration. Participants meet each day to discuss writing strategies, read about effective ways to teach writing and reading, use writing as a learning tool, research current topics in writing, and improve their teaching practices. As a result of these activities, teachers will be better prepared for their own classrooms and for working with all students and other teachers to become literacy leaders in their schools.

The CSWP focuses on the core mission of improving the teaching of writing and improving the use of writing and reading across the disciplines by offering high-quality, professional development programs for educators in their service areas, at all grade levels, and across the curriculum.
