CBWP 2019 Summer Institute

The Invitational Summer Institute (SI) of the Coastal Bend Writing Project is a four-week professional development program based on the National Writing Project (NWP) model.  See www.nwp.org
The SI is for teachers who value excellence in the classroom and have potential for leadership.  The Institute accepts applications from teachers of all subjects and grade levels from Pre-K to college.
Teachers who participate in the SI often speak of the experience as life changing.  They report feeling renewed, energized and more confident as both writers and educators.
Upon completion of the Institute, participants are welcomed into an established network of teachers who provide ongoing support for one another.  They also become eligible for additional opportunities for personal and professional growth.
