National Writing Project

Invitational Summer Institute

Each NWP site holds an invitational summer institute every year. The several thousand teachers who participate typically report a "great shift" in their teaching, describing the institute as the "best professional development" they have ever had. The summer institute is at the core of NWP's model of "teachers teaching teachers." More ›


Inservice refers to the broad category of professional development offerings provided for schools, school districts, and individual teachers throughout the year. More ›


Continuity programs and structures are designed to support the ongoing professional community of teacher-consultants and foster their shared commitment to improving the teaching and learning of writing. More ›
