Opportunities For Teachers and Administrators
Summer Institute 2023
In the summer of 2023, the Indiana Writing Project will offering a Invitational Leadership Institute, also known as a Summer Institute, on the teaching of writing at all levels and in all disciplines. Join with other teachers this summer to develop your own skills as a teacher-writer while exploring pedagogies, policies, and research about writing instruction.
Inservice Workshops and Training
Teachers who have completed the IWP Invitational Leadership Institute and additional preparation are available to provide Inservice Workshops, for schools or school districts. Contact IWP and describe your needs, and we will try to match you with a Teacher Consultant who will fit your request. Possibilities for topics include study groups, portfolios, authentic assessment, writing across the curriculum, process writing, reading/writing workshops, and the writing portion of ILEARN.
IWP Teaching Consultants can also contact IWP if they are interested in offering programs like this.
Opportunities For Our Teacher Consultants
All IWP Teacher Consultants are invited to attend our Rosebud Café Meetings to talk about writing and teaching, as well as to occasionally talk about Indiana Writing Project business. Coming up, we will be meeting in person at the Rosebud Café on May 20 at 10:00 a.m. Rosebud Café is located at 1805 S Hoyt Avenue in Muncie, Indiana. Contact IWP for details.
We would love to hear your ideas for utilizing your IWP training in your district or region. Let us know if you're interested in offering programing or other opportunities for teachers in your community.
