Real Teachers, Real Leaders. Real Results
Learn and Grow with MWP This Summer!
The Morehead Writing Project is currently accepting applications for our 2017 Invitational Summer Institute Fellowships and we are building a cohort for our 2017 Open Online Summer Institute.
Both programs offer teachers from kindergarten through college the unique professional and personal growth experience offered by the National Writing Project. Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis to select teachers and include a stipend as well as the professional development. The Online Summer Institute is open to all interested educators, but requires a registration fee.
National Writing Project professional development is among the most powerful and effective available today. National studies have shown that the students of NWP teachers outperform the students of non-NWP teachers on tests and are more competent and confident writers in general. These studies demonstrate that professional development programs designed and delivered by NWP sites have a positive effect on the writing achievement of students across grade levels, schools, and contexts.
Participation in a National Writing Project Summer Institute confers membership in an amazing network of educators and opens the door to many leadership and growth opportunities. You can also earn graduate credit.
