SLWP SUMMER INSTITUTE IN TEACHING WRITING
June 20 - July 21 2011
9:00 A.M. - 3:30 P.M. Mon. - Thurs
The Southeastern Louisiana Writing Project (SLWP) is now accepting applications for its 20th "Invitational Summer Institute in Teaching Writing." The Institute meets at Southeastern from June 20-July 21, Monday-Thursday, 9:00-3:30, and is designed for teachers who use writing in their classrooms, are eager to share their knowledge, and wish to learn from other experienced classroom teachers.
During the Institute, selected K-College teachers from across
the curriculum study the teaching of writing, reflect on their own
teaching, and share their best teaching practices with each
other. Participants also produce personal and professional
writing and develop workshops on teaching writing suitable for
delivery to local schools. As Summer Fellows at the university,
participants receive a stipend, six hours of graduate credit, and
free tuition. Upon completion of the Institute, they are
recognized as National Writing Project Teacher Consultants.
Applicants should submit the following:
- a resume
- a brief description of a writing activity used in their classroom;
- a recommendation from a supervisor or member of SLWP
- a page containing your name/address/phone/email/W# and your school/grade/content
Applications are considered until the Institute is filled, and on-campus interviews are held throughout the Spring for promising applicants. Applications can be emailed to < firstname.lastname@example.org> or addressed to Dr. Richard Louth, SLU 10327, Hammond, LA 70402.
