NWAWP Teacher Consultants and Fellows are invited to take advantage of any of the opportunities listed below:
Summer Institute for Science Teachers. This new for 2018 initiative seeks to build strategies and lessons to improve your own students’ thinking and learning in science by infusing instruction with meaningful writing (more than just lab reports). Click here for more information.
Creative Nonfiction Writers Circle. This writing group gathers monthly over the course of the year to read and write together. NWAWP will cover the reading fee and a year-long subscription to Creative Nonfiction for all participants who submit essays to the journal. Space is limited.
NBCT Support Groups. If you would like to apply for National Board Certification, contact NWAWP to connect with other fellows and TCs in the network who can help support you in this process.
Research Roundtable. Join NWAWP staff, fellows, TCs, and participating teachers each spring for a day of sharing classroom-based research projects. This is a great place to try out ideas you may be considering for conference presentations or publication. Professional development credit is available for this event.
Salon Nights. The National Writing Project and its sites understand that good writing requires nourishment. Join the network for an evening of food, drink, writing, and fellowship.
Writing Lesson Exchange. Join NWAWP staff, fellows, TCs, and participating teachers each fall for a day of sharing writing practices that work. This is a great place to try out ideas you may be considering for conference presentations or publication. Professional development credit is available for this event.
Writing Retreats. Need an excuse to spend a night or two being inspired in Eureka Springs? Does a few days on the Buffalo River, reading and writing with no distractions, sound like a good way to pass the weekend? Keep in touch, and we’ll let you know about these retreats as they are offered.
Invitational Summer Institute. A hallmark of National Writing Project sites around the country, the ISI brings teachers together to read, write, and collaborate in professionally and personally meaningful ways. We’ll post information about the 2016 ISI in the early spring, so stay tuned!
