Inside Inquiry: A Teacher Inquiry Communities Network Institute

July 29 – August 1, 2009

Babson Executive Conference Center
Wellesley, Massachusetts

The Teacher Inquiry Communities (TIC) Network offers this four-day summer institute to support writing project sites to develop and sustain inquiry communities. This event is for sites that are new to the process of supporting inquiry communities or that would like to revitalize their teacher inquiry communities by taking a fresh look at how to work with them.

By the end of the institute, we hope to demystify the idea of inquiry and inquiry communities by

  • engaging participants in reading, writing, and thinking about inquiry
  • developing inquiry questions
  • gathering and analyzing data
  • thinking about how to go public with the work.


Food and lodging costs will be covered for institute participants by the NWP. Sites are expected to cover all travel costs.
