SCWriP's 38th Invitational Summer Institute
***Please note that our application deadline has been extended to Monday, March 7, 2016***
The South Coast Writing Project is pleased to announce our 38th Annual Invitational Summer Institute in Composition and Critical Literacy. Our premier four-week professional development event will be held July 11th - August 4, 2016, Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-2:45 p.m., on the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara.
If you are a classroom teacher seeking to improve your classroom practice or a school administrator looking to change the culture of your school, the SCWriP's Invitational Summer Institute is for you. During this four-week think-tank, teachers from all grade-levels K to college, across all disciplines collaboratively investigate best practices in writing and literacy instruction through shared demonstrations of practice, readings, and an intense focus on our own writing and reading processes.
As an affiliated site of the National Writing Project (NWP) and the California Writing Project (CWP), SCWriP seeks to transform the teaching of writing and literacy and strives to be a model of professional learning, teacher leadership, and reform. We do this by working with teachers, schools, districts, students, and families.
