For the Love of Teaching Writing

Angela Knight

Fifteen new Summer Institute participants and a leadership team are all gearing up for four weeks of camaraderie and partnership in the process of expanding our horizons and both wallowing in and leaping out of our comfort zones as we challenge ourselves and each other to become better writers and better teachers of writing.

The annual orientation of the participants and mentors will happen on May 1st in Room 320 of the EMU student center from 5-7:30 p.m.
The 2012 Summer Institute will commence on Thursday, June 21st at 9 a.m. in the same room, and continue through Thursday, July 19th at 3 p.m., sans Wednesday, July 4th.
By creating a place and time in which teachers are self-directed in personal and professional development in writing and the teaching of writing, encouraged by their colleagues, and assisted along the way in this process, we hope to expand the network of teacher leaders who will promote writing in their school buildings and districts.
