Teachers are difference makers…
But we all need community to thrive.
There is no ceiling to our professional growth, but we need each other to accomplish difficult work on our students’ behalf. We need to raise our voices, lift our pens, and reflect deeply on the problems and systems we confront daily in classrooms and schools. We need to revise our practices to meet learners’ needs.
That is where the Western Pennsylvania Writing Project comes in. Many of the strongest, most innovative practitioners in the region trace their growth and development to WPWP.
Offered Monday through Friday, 8:30 am-3:30 pm, July 8-19, 2019, at Fanny Edel Falk Laboratory School, the Summer Institute for Teachers will focus on writing in and across disciplines and launching into inquiries based on the burning questions participants bring. Three graduate credits are available. Here are links to our brochure and application form: NewWPWP2019
