Our Teacher Writers and Presenters

As part of becoming a NSTWP TC, each teacher produces two or three pieces of writing during their Summer Institute in addition to a report on their teacher inquiry. Many of these teachers have continued writing as part of their work, either through blogging or by publishing in education journals. Also, many TC’s go on to present at local, regional, and national conferences about writing instruction in their classrooms and in their work. Many of our TC’s are working on publishing books or book chapters about their work, as well as writing curriculum for their school districts and for NSTWP. This section will highlight some of our teacher writers, from personal pieces to professional publications. Following that are highlights of some of our teacher presenters.

This section is under development – more to come!

Summer Institute Anthologies

Traditionally, writing project sites offer a Summer Institute, a three to four week training for teachers interested in learning more about how to incorporate writing into their instruction. As part of Summer Institute, participants write several pieces and publish an anthology of their work. Following are anthologies from previous Summer Institutes.
