Transcript

  • 1. Summer Institute in Writing After thirty-four years in the classroom, The Coastal Savannah Writing Project (CSWP) focuses on the mission of improving the teaching of writing and reading and improving the use of writing and reading across all the disciplines by offering high-quality, professional development programs for educators in their service areas, at all grade levels, and across the curriculum. the Coastal Savannah Writing Project has provided inspiration, guidance, collegiality, and a new found interest in research. This Summer Institute has been by far the most useful time I have devoted to writing [and the Coastal Savannah Writing Project 2014 Summer Institute in Writing June 9 - 20 teaching o f writing]. Deborah, CSWP Fellow The 2013 CSWP Summer Writing Institute (RDEN 7185) 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. This has been much more than a ‘professional development‘ opportunity – this experience has awakened a hibernating passion that will continue to be weeded and nourished. Angella, CSWP Fellow I found the strategies to help me find my voice in writing were phenomenal. I cannot teach what I have not experienced myself. The focus on the teacher as a writer will in turn energize the students and promote a life-long love for reading and writing. 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, 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.
