Writing Institutes for Teachers

All PSWP institutes welcome K-16 teachers who want to deepen their knowledge about the teaching of writing. Teachers will have the opportunity to practice their own writing, investigate an educational topic of your choice related to writing, share your teaching strategies, and learn efficient strategies from other teachers.
