Course Introduction

The CAWP Writing Institute is based on the philosophy of "teachers teaching teachers" and on the importance of teachers themselves writing as a part of improving the teaching of writing. Participating teachers will have the opportunities to learn from each other, to study writing theory and research, to write their own compositions and participate in writing workshops, and to develop leadership and professional development skills in the teaching of writing. This course will be taught as a synchronous distance learning course via Zoom with an option to meet face to face at the end of the session. We will be meeting via Zoom Monday-Friday, during the weeks of June 7-11 (no meeting Friday, June 11) and June 14-18 from 8:30 am till 12:00 pm. It is also expected that you will spend 60-90 minutes working on your own every afternoon. Please plan to attend every day.
